Bible Term: Omnipresent

Omni, means “all,” so omnipresent effectively means, “all present or existing everywhere.” Being omnipresent is a characteristic of God, which is to say that God is simultaneously present everywhere.

The noun form of omnipresent is omnipresence.

In addition to being omnipresent, God is also omniscient and omnipotent.

Key verse that describes God’s omnipresent character: “I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me (Psalm 139:7-10, NLT).

A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 700-page website ABibleADay.com to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and numerous books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
