God is Always With Us

Key Bible Verse: “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. (Jeremiah 23:24, ESV)

Dig Deeper: Psalm 139

Scripture tells us that God is present everywhere:

Where shall I go from your Spirit?
Or where shall I flee from your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, you are there!
If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!
If I take the wings of the morning
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
even there your hand shall lead me,
and your right hand shall hold me.
(Psalm 139:7-10, ESV et al.)

There’s no place we can be where God isn’t. He knows all and sees all. “And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account” (Heb. 4:13). God’s omnipresence is one of the most mind-boggling assumptions of Scripture. There are plenty of times I wish I could be in two places at once. God is not only in two places at once; he’s everywhere at once.

God can make his presence known anywhere and at any time, because he’s already there.
