Psalm 139 - O Jehovah, You have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up. You understand my thoughts from afar. You thoroughly search my path and my lying down. And you are acquainted with all my ways. For a word is not yet on my tongue, And already You, O Jehovah, know it completely. You have closed in on me behind and before. And have laid Your hand on me. O knowledge too wonderful for me! It is so high' I cannot attain to it. Where shall I go, away from Your Spirit, And where shall I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, there You are. If I take the wings of the dawn and settle at the limits of the sea, There also Your hand will lead me, and Your right hand will take hold of me.

Yes nobody can escape from the presence of God, but sometimes people fail to understand when they do wrong or go to wrong places they forget that God is there even in those places and he is watching them if they had realized that they would never sin, they would have been more careful. so this verses should be memorized and kept in the heart.

God is watching over you, even as you move your eyelid, even as your heart desires God is there. You are not alone. He is nearer than you Think. He is the Good Shepherd.

Not me I'm sure. The Psalm you quoted is very nice. I hope that people who question God would understand this and have their deeper and more careful study about God and the word of God.

No one. God is Omniscient, Omnipresent and Omnipotent! Hebrews 5:13 stated: "Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to Whom we must give account."

Nobody could really escape from God. Even if we run away from Him, and go to other place, we will find out that He is already there waiting for us and say, "I will not let you go." I praise and thank the Lord that He will never let me go.

Well thank you for that bible quote. Here's one that I really like: "For whoever has, to him more shall be given, and he shall have abundance; but whoever has not, from him even what he has shall be taken" - Matthew 13:12 So we do need a lot of money ;-)
