It is a reminder to us as we go through our daily tasks, joys, trials, struggles and temptations that Christ is ever near to strengthen us and guide us. As we enter into a world that is sometimes receptive but also sometimes antagonistic to Christ, we know that Christ’s love and presence surround us. Christ may even speak just the word we need to hear from a friend or even a stranger.
These words are echoed in Psalm 139:7-10: “Where can I go from your spirit? Or where can I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there; if I make my bed in Sheol, you are there. If I take the wings of the morning and settle at the farthest limits of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me fast.”
