Psalm 139 (Part 2 of 5)

I mentioned in part one of this series about a potter forming clay on a potter’s wheel. That analogy of God forming us into His creation comes from Isaiah 29 and Jeremiah 18. I’d like to present a visual of that for you with this video:

Often it is really hard (at least for me!) to bear what the Lord wants to do in my life. Usually this comes with change; something that has been added into my life (new people, job, situation) or taken away from me (relationship, family member, loss of anything, really!)–without my permission. It may sound selfish, but I feel like I have been overlooked or taken advantage of whenever God lands me in such situations. But this is just part of Him molding me into who I am going to be.

The passage from Psalm 139 is taken from verses 7-12:

Where can I go to escape Your Spirit?
Where can I flee from Your presence?
If I go up to heaven, You are there;
if I make my bed in Sheol, You are there.
If I live at the eastern horizon
or settle at the western limits,[a]
10 even there Your hand will lead me;
Your right hand will hold on to me.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me,
and the light around me will be night”—
12 even the darkness is not dark to You.
The night shines like the day;
darkness and light are alike to You.

Question 2: What are some times when you tried to hide from the Lord? Did you think it would get better?

I’d like to hear your thoughts on this. How do these verses shine light on your situation? Sometimes it’s really hard to offer advice, but I definitely am encouraged when I get to hear your points of view! Please share!
