In David’s tribute to the Jehovah’s omnipresence in Psalm 139, he declares two inescapable truths.
First, space does not limit God. “Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in Sheol, behold, 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” (vv. 7-10).
Second, darkness does not hide anything from God. “If I say, ‘Surely the darkness shall fall on me,’ even the night shall be light about me; indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, but the night shines as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to You“ (vv. 11-12).
Idols have eyes but do not see (Psalm 135:15-16), but “the eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good” (Proverbs 15:3).
God’s omnipresence is inescapable.
