The Wings of the Wind
He bowed the heavens also, and came down
with darkness under His feet. He rode upon a cherub, and flew;
and He was seen upon the wings of the wind. - 2 Samuel 22:10-11
God dwells in the heights of the heavens (Psalm 115:3); His presence fills the heavenly skies. He is omnipresent––everywhere at all times. Psalm 139:7-10 further sheds light on David’s thoughts, he wrote:
Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me.
As we meditate on these verses we can come to a better understanding of how God is everywhere; we cannot hide from His presence. He is inescapable––neither can we out run God. In the tribulation period––the end of days in earth’s history; men will try to hide from God’s glorious presence and from the anger of the Lamb––Jesus.
And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders,the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! (Revelation 6:15-16).
Never hide from God, repent and ask forgiveness of your sins. Then you will never be afraid to see His face––you will love His appearing.
…there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.
~2 Timothy 4:8~
