“And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest” (Exodus 33:15).Text — Exodus 33:12-17
Omnipresence is God’s ability to be everywhere at every time. God’s omnipresence goes along with His omnipotence which means He has all power. He is also omniscient; He knows all things. All three represent the attributes of God that man cannot have. Moses knew how challenging the journey ahead of him would be therefore he requested God’s presence. When God is with us, all will be alright.
God’s omnipresence reminds us of our privilege as well as our responsibility. He is ever present to defend His children from every danger, but His piercing eyes also see the occurrence of any act of disobedience. In the world, ungodly bosses usually watch their subordinates’ actions for the purpose of control or exercise of authority. God is not like that; and as a good Father, He wants to instruct, teach, and guide His children with His eyes. We continue to enjoy the protection of His presence as we walk in obedience to His commandments. Like David, say, “The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear?”
God is with us, all will be alright
God is my Companion, I fear no one.
