If I ascend to heaven, Thou art there; if I make my bed in Sheol, behold, Thou art there . . . . if I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, even there Thy hand will lead me. (Psalm 139:8 NASB)
The psalmist ponders where he would have to travel to escape the presence of God. He imagines climbing to the mountaintop and then descending to the shadowy realm of the dead, but God is there. Then he imagines fleeing all the way to the Rock of Gibraltar, west of the Mediterranean Sea, where he finds Him. He concluded that there is nowhere to flee from God’s presence. Look at Jonah, who was fleeing to Tarshish and was swallowed by a whale. He finally had to quit running and surrender to the will of God, and so must we.
