A Message of Comfort

Too Wonderful for Me

January 18

Read: PSALM 139:7-12

Starting in the late 1970s, Glad was a pioneer band in Christian pop/rock and a cappella music. With complex, beautifully arranged vocals, their sound soon morphed into a sophisticated pop/jazz style and captured listeners all over the U.S. One of their songs, based on powerful words from Psalm 139:7-12, starts off asking, “Where can I go from your Spirit?” According to the psalmist, the answer is: nowhere (vs. 8-10). Do you believe that? Do you live life in that reality?

What an amazing truth it is to know that no matter what we go through or encounter in our lives, we can never run away or hide from the Lord. The above song ends with another powerful scriptural truth: “When I am hurting, it comforts me to know—nothing can take away your love.” God and his great love is with us everywhere we go and in everything we do.

Father in heaven, when we feel alone and are going through dark valleys, remind us of your presence and may that grant us peace. AMEN.
