Omnipresence

Omnipresence

 

Omnipresent, (‘ubiquitous’) refer to the quality of being everywhere. Omnipresence is a term that means God is capable of being, and is everywhere at the same time. It means his divine presence encompasses the whole of the universe. There is no location where he does not occupy. Omnipresence indicates that although God is separate from the universe, He inhabits the entirety of it. He is everywhere at once.

As with His infinity He fills the whole of creation which makes it possible for Him to be present everywhere at once –

“Am I a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a God afar off? Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord” (Jeremiah 23:23,24).

Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God. (Psalm 90:1-2)

Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection? It is as high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper than hell; what canst thou know? The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea. (Job 11:7-9)

What a relief this is – to know that The One who watches over us can be anywhere our adversaries are at any point in time –

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. (Psalm 139:7-10)

“Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high” (Hebrews 1:3).

His presence everywhere means He is there even when man sins and no one is present and there is nowhere we can hide to sin that He is not present. The Psalmist observed –

“If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there” (Psalm 139:8).

Am I a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a God afar off? Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord. (Jeremiah 23:23-24)

O Lord our God, You are our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble; we know that there is no event for which you are absent because You are the high and lofty One that inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy; You dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones; WE HAND THE ENTIRETY OF OUR BEING INTO YOUR MIGHTY HANDS and pray that by Your grace will put Your mantle of humility upon us.
