Nowhere to Run
by Dr. Dan Sharp, Minister of Worship
Have you ever tried to run away from God? Often humans think in terms of the physical. If I can just get to a different place, I will be safe or I will escape this situation. If I change the surroundings, I will solve my problem.
When that “problem” is God, we can be tempted to think that if I put myself in a different environment–my “God” problem will go away. If God were an idol, that would be very possible, just put the idol in the mail and send it to the Antarctic! But God is Spirit and you cannot flee from the Holy Spirit.
Rest assured today that your loving heavenly Father is very present in your life, wherever you go, whatever you think, whatever you say or do. Running from God takes many forms. You may encounter someone today who may not realize the futility of the run, or even that they are on a run! God may use you today to speak truth.
