Have you had your JOY JUICE today? Going on a trip? Staying at home? You can find the joy of the Lord….wherever you are.
During the summer months, many people try to schedule time for a family vacation. Some go to the beach; others prefer the cooler temperatures of the mountains. There are cruises, amusement parks, rafting adventures and many other opportunities for fun. But no matter where we go or even if we choose a “stay-cation”, GOD IS THERE!
There is absolutely NO physical location in this universe where we can hide from the presence of God! The Bible is plain about that. In fact, King David posed this question directly---in Psalm 139: 7-10:
“Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.”
David’s words remind us that it is futile to search for a place to hide from the presence of God; and may I add…very unwise to try—just ask Jonah!). God’s infallible word shows that He is omnipresent—within His vast creation, there is no place where we can go where He is not!
Whether on vacation, at home, at work or wherever…..rest assured that God is with you! Isn’t that a sweet serving of joy?
