Why We Worship 11




I am taking time each week to ask myself "Why we worship"


Today I want to focus on the fact 

                  yes fact 

                              that


God is everywhere.   


He is OMNIPRESENT



This doesn't mean that part of God is in one place, 
                                             
                                                  another part in another place 
                                                               
                                                                         or another in a third place.  


It means that all of Him is present everywhere at the same time, not part of Him in different places.

So there is no-one like our God because no-one can be everywhere at all times.



God has told us that He reigns in Heaven and Earth,























What a consoling and exciting piece of knowledge for us to have.


We are never alone from God, He always hears our prayers, He is always there to comfort, guide and support us.

However,

this also means that no-one can hide from 
God 
                         
                              or that we can do anything behind His back 
                                            
                                              as everything is done in His presence so He sees and hears it all.




Jeremiah 23:24

Can a man hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him? declares the Lord. Do I not fill heaven and earth? declares the Lord.







Does this not thrill you to know for a fact that wherever you go, He is there?

  1. It is a true statement that God is omnipresent. It is true, we cannot hide from God, and it is also true that we cannot go anywhere where God cannot be with us. I wanted to share another category that is in the same folder of omnipresence, which is transcendence. God in His omnipresence can withhold His transcendence where it is rejected.
    I am thankful to be married to my beautiful wife. But there are times where she is here, but she is not here. She is here physically, but her mind is off in another direction. It is the difference between involvement and inclusion. To be included is not that big of a deal. And if I am removed someone else fills the gap. But if I am removed from the inclusion the plan and details of my involvement eradicate the final goal. God includes Himself in all things (omnipresence) but his inclusion (transcendence) is reserved for believers.
    Thanks for the reminder that God is everywhere!
    ~Grace and peace

  6. Knowing He is Omnipresent has brought me such comfort with my husband away. I love knowing that the same God who is with me here is the same one who is with my husband. It helps make him feel not so far away. Such a wonderful reason to worship Him. Thanks, friend. As you know... I love, love, love this series.

    1. Oh Beth you do encourage me so much. My husband used to travel a lot with his work but nothing like as long as the time your husband is away, it is hard so I'm praying for you.
