The Omnipresence of God…

30 Dec


Psalm 139:7-10, “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.”

The word omnipresence is defined as being present in every place at the same time; unbounded or having universal presence. The omnipresence of God is one of the divine characteristics of our Lord in which many believer’s in the Faith should study and apply in their lives today. Knowing that God almighty is in control of every situation that we go through is a comforting fact and a great Faith builder in being a Disciple of Jesus Christ. At times in the life of us as Believer’s, we have the tendency that when things do not go or turn out the way that we want that Jehovah is not with us when in fact He is the author and the finisher of all things in the lives of those who believe on Him, whether good or bad in our eyes. God is the ultimate craftsman! In knowing what each and every characteristic His children needs to develop or be strengthened in. Proverbs 15:3 states, “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.” With God being present in Heaven and in the Earth as we know Deuteronomy 4:39, “Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.” With Jehovah being ever present in our lives we need to look for Him and seek every opportunity to build up our Spirituality to know more of Him. In some cases this may be dealing with a death in the family, sickness, or a difficult co-worker. You see God knew before hand that this situation would arise, he is ever present! The Lord looks for us to deal with the ills of this world as Christ did and grow in the Faith. God may even cause Satan described in the Bible as our footstool (Romans 16:19-20) to cause disruption in our lives like the Lord allowed in the Book of Job. The central idea is to let all those who believe know that Jehovah is in control of our lives and not us. We have no purpose other than what He ordains for us to be. This gives many the freedom to live out his will and not our own. Job 2:10 states, “But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.” God uses the enemy in many ways to produce love, patience, kindness, virtue and moral excellence in His children by allowing hardship and temptation in our lives knowing that by resisting we grow more and more in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Remember the next time someone wrongs you or your health may be taken for a season know that God is present and will see you through it. Keeping you always in His presence. Shalom
