Psalm 139:7-10 (WEB)
7 Where could I go from your Spirit? Or where could I flee from your presence?
8 If I ascend up into heaven, you are there. If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, you are there!
9 If I take the wings of the dawn, and settle in the uttermost parts of the sea;
10 Even there your hand will lead me, and your right hand will hold me.
Psalm 139 is one of my favorite psalms. In today's Scripture passage, King David is declaring that there is absolutely no place he could go to escape the presence of God. If he goes to heaven, God is there. If he even descended into the earth, God is there. David goes on to say that wherever he goes, the hand of the Lord will lead him and hold him.
