It reminded me of the impossibility of trying to hide from God...No matter how grown up our schemes seem to us, to Him they are as simple (and silly) as Elijah's attempts to hide from us! The Psalmist David, in the 139th Psalm writes of the impossibility of hiding from God. Regarding the third verse, the great preacher, Charles Spurgeon writes:
Thou art familiar with all I do; nothing is concealed from thee, nor surprising to thee, nor misunderstood by thee. Our paths may be habitual or accidental, open or secret, but with them all the Most Holy One is well acquainted. This should fill us with awe, so that we sin not; with courage, so that we fear not; with delight, so that we mourn not.
Take out the thees and thous if you must, but rejoice in the fact that nothing is concealed, surprising or misunderstood by our God! Let us be filled with awe, courage, and delight--innocently, like our little Elijah, reveling in the sure and certain love of our Heavenly Father.
Sin not...Fear not..Mourn not
