Good morning people who are loved by an ever present God
As we allow God to stretch our faith levels as we mediate on Who He is, here’s the next truth about God that I want to mention:
God is Omnipresent: ‘everywhere present all at the same time.’
Psalm 139:7-10 (NIV) Where can I go from Your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your presence? If I go up to the heavens, You are there; if I make my bed in the depths, You are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast.
Wherever you go, God is there!
Jeremiah 23:23-24 (NIV) “Am I only a God nearby,” declares the Lord, “and not a God far away? Who can hide in secret places so that I cannot see them?” declares the Lord. “Do not I fill heaven and earth?” declares the Lord.
Proverbs 15:3 (NIV) The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.
One of the names of God is Emmanuel which literally means ‘God with us’. This is Who He is!
When you’re at Church, God is there. When you’re at work or school, God is there. When you’re at home, God is there. When you’re watching things on YouTube, God is there. When you’re with your friends, God is there. When you’re alone, God is there.
Hebrews 13:5b-6 (NIV) …God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”
Because God is always everywhere, I am never alone. This gives me great security!!!
