Are You Running?


Psalm 55:4 My heart pounds in my chest.
The terror of death assaults me.
5 Fear and trembling overwhelm me,
and I can’t stop shaking.
6 Oh, that I had wings like a dove;
then I would fly away and rest!
7 I would fly far away
to the quiet of the wilderness.

8
 How quickly I would escape—far from this wild storm of hatred.

Perhaps the most natural action to feeling scared, confused or overwhelmed is to run. People run from jobs, from people, from family and even from God. David says in verse 6, if I had wings I would fly away!
 In my own life, I have realized that running was not really my problem. It was the destination of my running. I know now that there are really only two ways to run: you can run away from God or you can run to him.
 So take a look at where you are running and make sure that where you end up is in the arms of a God that is bigger that all of your problems!
