OMNIPRESENCE

Where can I go from your Spirit? 

Where can I flee from your presence?

Psalm 139:7

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, no matter how far you run from Me, you cannot escape My love or My presence. My eyes see your every action; My heart feels your every pain; My Spirit lives within you and travels wherever you go. My love will chase you down, but I will never force you to return. As long as you live, I will continue to call your name until you let Me back in as the keeper and ruler of your heart. I'm omnipresent, Child. I'm with you always.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
At times I may be alone, but I'm never lonely. Your Spirit surrounds me wherever I go. In the garden's sweet fragrance, on the storm-tossed sea, in the highest heavens, and beneath the deepest ocean, You are there, Lord. Your presence is inescapable. Lord, why would I ever leave the joy of Your presence? You are omnipresent—always near. Thanks for being there, Lord.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Love keeps us close to the heart of God.
