God is omnipresent.

23 Yet I am always with you;
you hold me by my right hand.
24 You guide me with your counsel,
and afterward you will take me into glory.
(Psalm 73:23-24)

Omnipresence does not imply that God is spread out or diffused throughout the universe in that only part of Him is everywhere. This is erroneous thinking. He is wholly present as fully as if He were in only one place. God completely fills the entire universe and all aspects of it without diffusion, expansion, multiplication, or division. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are fully present in every minute part of His infinite dominion. This is known as God’s immanence. God is everywhere and in all things simultaneously in His totality and with all of His perfect attributes.
The Christian can take great comfort in the omnipresence of God. His continual presence in all things should be abundant consolation to believers. The following verses speaks of God’s promises to Israel and to each of us. They also speak of the mental attitude of confidence we should have in God’s ability to keep His promises. He has said that he is present when two or more assemble in God's name. God has promised that He will always be with us in every possible situation. There is no greater encouragement for the believer.

“Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” (Genesis 28:15)

Whether it is atmosphere, stratosphere, ionosphere, or throughout space, God is there. No matter how far you go out in space or even into heaven, God is there. God is in His heaven, God is throughout space, God is throughout our stratosphere, our ionosphere, atmosphere, God is everywhere, even in the depths of the ocean and in the depths of the earth. You cannot hide from God and God never hides from any of us.

That’s wonderful comfort, isn’t it. The omnipresence of God should make us realize that you can’t get away from God. It means that God knew your life’s entire history (with all of the sordid details) in eternity past. He knows all about you. But most of all, God loves you.

Peace and love,


"Then Jesus said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me". (Luke 9:23)
