The Attributes Of God- He Is Omnipresent

The final couplet in my 2021 "Attributes Of God" series focuses on the fact that God is everywhere at all times. Our Creator is not limited to being in one place at a time and there is no where we can go that takes us out of His reach. Quite a thought! Troubling for the rebellious sinner, comforting for the child of God.

When you think back over your walk with the Lord, how have you been aware of His presence being faithfully with you? Have you ever tried to run from God, only to discover there is nowhere to flee from His loving presence?

In my own life, I can see how Jesus has been my faithful Companion wherever I've gone. He's been with me wherever I've travelled in a physical sense but He's also been with me in other ways too. His presence truly knows no boundaries.

My Saviour, who doesn't need rest has rescued me from the depths of sleep and pulled me out of many unpleasant dreams. I've cried out to Him several times in the night and behold, He is there. I watched Him cut through the fog of Alzheimers in my Grandmother as she called to Him and behold, He was there.

In a world where people so often feel lonely and abandoned by others, what a blessing it is to know Jesus is faithfully with us and will never leave or forsake us, wherever we go.
The Attributes Of God- He Is Omnipresent.

"Our God is Omnipresent, He is with us all around.
There is no height nor depth nor width His Presence can’t be found."

Psalm 139:7-10
"Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me."

Jeremiah 23:23-24
"“Am I a God near at hand,” says the Lord,
“And not a God afar off?
Can anyone hide himself in secret places,
So I shall not see him?” says the Lord;
“Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the Lord."
