For way too many years I ran from my issues. I ran because, to be quite frank about it, I was scared to death of the confrontation it would cause to stand up for myself! Oh, not just with people, but with myself and especially with God. Yes, I was totally afraid of God. Can you imagine that? Me, afraid of God...my loving, understanding, nurturing heavenly Daddy! But I was. All because of the intimidation of others.
Elijah was afraid and fled for his life.... There he came to a cave, where he spent the night. But the Lord said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” ~1 Kings 19:3(a), 9, NLT
O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me... I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! ~Psalm 139:1, 7, NLT
God is everywhere, all the time. There is nowhere that you can go where He can't or won't find you, or where He isn't already! If you read all of Psalm 139, you will see that He knows everything about you, inside and out.
