Chapter-a-Day Psalm 25

SunsetroadFrom now on every road you travel will take you to God. Psalm 25:10a (TM)

I remember a testimony I heard many years ago of a man who, like the Prodigal Son, had rebelled and run away – as far from God has he felt he could possibly go. The problem was, he admitted, "every time I tried to run away FROM God – I ran INTO Him."

That’s the way it is with an ever-present God and Creator. We live in His creation. We are surrounded by Him. We encounter Him in those we meet each day whom He indwells. There’s no place to escape.

As David wrote so eloquently in Psalm 139:

Is there anyplace I can go to avoid your Spirit?
      to be out of your sight?
   If I climb to the sky, you’re there!
      If I go underground, you’re there!
   If I flew on morning’s wings
      to the far western horizon,
   You’d find me in a minute—
      you’re already there waiting!
   Then I said to myself, "Oh, he even sees me in the dark!
      At night I’m immersed in the light!"
   It’s a fact: darkness isn’t dark to you;
      night and day, darkness and light, they’re all the same to you.

At some point I always look back from my running, back at the path I’ve taken – and find that God was leading me to this place all along.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Psalm 25”

  1. 15 If I keep my eyes on God,
    I won’t trip over my own feet.
    This is a great reminder as we beginning planning our business for 2008. This is real in my life. When I look back almost every time I depend on myself I end up tripping. Then I get mad that I tripped. I need to focus on God to avoid that.
