Psalm 139

You are amazing. Did you know that? God created you, and He knows everything. Wherever you are, He is there. He is in the light with you, He is in the darkness with you. He is even in hell with you.

Unbelievable, isn’t it? It is only heaven where God is, isn’t it? No! That’s why this very old poem and song is so comforting. God is everywhere and you cannot escape his presence. If you are in the light, God is there. If you are in the darkness, God is there. If you are in heaven, God is there. If you are in hell, God is there. Psalm 139 says it like this: ​

‘If I ascend to heaven, you are there!
​If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!’
