God Is Wholly Present Everywhere

Although God transcends space as its creator, He Himself is wholly present everywhere in space. As our verses for today put it, “He is not far from each one of us.” Although we can ignore God and turn away from Him, this does not mean that we can actually escape from His presence. Psalm 139:7-8 says, “Where can I go from your Spirit? Or where can I flee from your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.”

It is true that “in Him we live and move and have our being” because God is present everywhere sustaining, maintaining, and upholding the whole creation, heaven and earth. Hebrews 1:3 says of God the Son that He is continuously “upholding all things by the word of His power.”

Take comfort today in the thought that God is not far away from you and is not inaccessible to you. At any time and from any place, you may enter into His presence.
