The Implications of Omnipresence

The entry “Omni God” mentioned that, among other things, God is “omnipresent.”  This means that God is present everywhere or that he exists in all places, at all times.

This is a grand and awesome concept, to realize that God simultaneously exists everywhere.  It is huge, immense, and at times a bit overwhelming.  Sometimes this reality makes me feel small and insignificant.

However, if God is everywhere, then he is also here, right now.  His omnipresent reality allows him to be here with me and to be with you — wherever you may be and wherever you may be there.

Yes, God’s omnipresence is big and grand and all-encompassing; it also means that he is intimate and personal, and readily accessible.

God may be big, but he’s also here, right now, for each of us.

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.
