You Can Run But You Can't Hide
Psalms 139:7-13
This just seems to be saying one clear thing: You can't get away from God.

This just seems to be saying one clear thing: You can't get away from God. There is nowhere you can go to escape His Spirit or His Presence. Go up, down, east, west, night, day, inside, outside, regardless he is there. I can see this affecting someone in one of two ways: First, you feel funny. God goes everywhere with you. How can you get away? It feels like a violation of privacy. What if you don't want God to go everywhere with you? How can you escape? Second, you feel shepherded. He is everywhere with you. You can't be lost from his sight. What a comfort that in good or bad God is there.

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.
If I say, "Surely the darkness shall cover me,
and the light about me be night,"
progression
even the darkness is not dark to you;
the night is bright as the day,

For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother's womb.
