Scriptures for Sunday August 17

Psalm 139:7-12

There is nowhere to run away from God. As high as one can ascend into the heavens, or as low into the grave itself, God is already there. As far east as the “wings or the morning” or as far west as one can go across the ocean, there is no escaping God’s presence.

There is nowhere to hide from God. Darkness may hide us from human eyes but never from God, because He does not need light to see.

Jeremiah 23:23-24

People who do not want to have their sins known and judged by God – like those Jeremiah was preaching against – prefer to think of God as limited in His knowledge and power. But God is not limited. He fills the entire universe, and knows all the things that people think they have hidden.
