Escape

Did you know that no matter how many times you fail, you can never escape the love of Christ? Through all the good and bad, He is always there ready to accept us and love us.

Psalm 139

“O Lord you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my every thought when far away. You chart the path ahead of me and tell me where to stop and rest. Every moment you know where I am. You know what i am going to say even before I say it, Lord. You both precede me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to know! 7-I can never ESCAPE from your spirit! I can never get away from your presence. If i go up to heaven, you are there. if i go down to the place of the dead you are there! If i ride the wings of the morning, if i dwell by the farthest oceans even there your hand will guide me and your strength will support me. I could ask the darkness to hide me and the light around me to become night- but even in darkness i cannot hide from you. To you the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are both alike to you. 13-You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mothers womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex, the workmanship is marvelous and how well i know it! You watch me as i was being formed in utter seclusion, as i woven together in the dark of the womb, you saw me before i was born, every day of my life was recorded in your book, every moment laid out before a single day had passed. How precious are your thoughts about me O God. They’re innumerable. I cant even count them, they outnumber the grains of sand. And when I wake in the morning you are still with me, O God if you would destroy the wicked, get out of my life you murderers, they blaspheme you. Your enemies take your name in vain, O Lord shouldn’t I hate those who hate you? Shouldn’t I despise those who resist you? Yes I hate them with complete hatred, for your enemies are my enemies. Search me O God and know my heart, test me and know my thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you and lead me along the path of everlasting life!”

Every moment of every day of every success and every failure, God is sitting right next to you with His hand of blessing ready for you. God knows what it’s like to live in the world. He stepped down out of heaven to take the form of man for each and every one of us. He knows the difficulties you are going through. That is why He is not asking for you to be perfect. He is just asking for a little sacrifice. More of Him and less of us.
