He Will Not Abandon

See Psalm 139:7-10

Have you been hunting for God lately? Many claim to be searching high and low, proclaiming all the while that God just can’t be found anywhere. But what if this claim is bogus and the opposite is true? What if, instead of seeking God, we have been steadfastly avoiding Him? What if we actually fear coming face to face with Him because that would hamper our strong inclination to live free of Him? The psalm tells us that the quest for independence is delusional and futile. “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?”

The truth is we cannot flee from the presence of God. We can deny God, but our denial does not cause God to turn away. Peter proclaimed that he would defend Jesus unto death, and then he fled in the face of danger. In one way or another, Peter is all of us, but God did not abandon Peter, and He does not abandon us just because we may seek to abandon him. “let us celebrate. For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.” (Luke 15:24)
