Purpose: Did you ever feel all alone? Maybe in danger or in a dark place? Actually, you were not alone, were you? God is everywhere all the time. Learn more what this practically means to our lives.

God’s constant presence makes a great difference (Psalm 139:1-6; Mat 28:20)

“As eternity is the perfection whereby he hath neither beginning nor end, immutability is the perfection whereby he hath neither increase nor diminution, so immensity or omnipresence is that whereby he hath neither bounds nor limitation. As he is in all time, yet so as to be above time; so is he in all places, yet so as to be above limitation by any place.” (Stephen Charnock)

Various ways that God is all-present

"So there are several manifestations of His presence; he hath a presence of glory in heaven, whereby he comforts the saints; a presence of wrath in hell, whereby he torments the damned; in heaven he is a God spreading his beams of light; in hell, a God distributing his strokes of justice; by the one he fills heaven; by the other he fills hell; by his providence and essence he fills both heaven and earth.” (Stephen Charnock)

How God’s all-present, all-knowing being impacts humanity

“The omnipresence of God is a comfort in all violent temptations. No fiery dart can be so present with us, as God is present both with that and the marksman. The most raging devils cannot be so near us, as God is to us and them. He is present with his people to relieve them, and present with the devil to manage him to his own holy purposes: so he was with Job, defeating his enemies, and bringing him triumphantly out of those pressing trials.” (Stephen Charnock)

It brings comfort to believers (John 21:17) and brings real hope (Heb 4:12-13) (1 Corinth. 4:5).

Qualities of God’s all-knowing perfection

God’s foreknowledge, especially as it relates to election

God’s foreknowledge: its meaning (Foreknowledge = ‘to know beforehand’)

God’s foreknowledge: its scope

God’s knowledge co-exists with God’s sovereign decree(s). Foreknowledge is not the cause of our believing, but divine election is, --- thus our believing in Christ is election’s effect. (Acts 13:48)

“God foreknows what will be because He has decreed what shall be. It is therefore a reversing of the order of Scripture, a putting of the cart before the horse, to affirm that God elects because He foreknows people. The truth is, He “foreknows” because He has elected. This removes the ground or cause of election from outside the creature, and places it in God’s own sovereign will. God purposed in Himself to elect a certain people, not because of anything good in them or from them, either actual or foreseen, but solely out of His own mere pleasure.” (Arthur W. Pink)
