Faith walk: Our God

God is everywhere. This is one of the great truths of the Scripture that defies man’s logic. It is a part of the encompassing doctrine of the very nature of God.

He is omnipotent. He has all power.

He is omniscient. He knows all things.

He is omnipresent. He is everywhere.

Wherever you are, God is there. This the message of the Psalmist in Psalms 139. In that Psalm, the writer says I is impossible to escape the presence of God. He said, “Wherever I go, You are already there.” (Read verses 7-10)

Some would see this truth as a negative. If you want to hide from God, this truth is disturbing. If you want to serve and obey Him, it is wonderful.

He is in your home. He is in hospitals. He is in your car as you drive. He is in the grocery store. He is in the bank. He is in the restaurant. He is in the place where you sin. He is in the place where you live righteously.

The message is timeless. Adam and Eve could not hide from Him in the garden. That message is still true. We cannot hide from Him today.

We want to declare His glory by recognizing the positive power of His presence. He is a wonderful Guide. He is our Protector. He is our Comforter. He is our Teacher.

Surprise! God lives in Green Cove Springs. He lives in Fleming Island. He lives In Orange Park. He lives in Middleburg. He lives in Oakleaf. He lives in Clay County! To be true to His word, the Lord must be present everywhere.

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.” (Psalms 23)

So, we are confronted with this. We must live our lives with the awareness that God is wherever we are. If you are living for Him, you rejoice. If you are not living for Him, you question.
