The Omniscience, Omnipotence and Omnipresence of God

The Bible is all about God (Luke 24:44-45) and His *relationship with His creatures; in particular His relationship with human beings. We are of prime importance to Him (Deuteronomy 7:6), for He created us for the purpose of having a relationship with Him. The relationship He desires is for us to love Him (Deuteronomy 6:5) as He loves us (John 13:34; John 15:12). This is a corporate relationship of oneness in Him (1 John 4:12-16).

However, there is a profound difference between us and Him. He is God, the Creator, Holy and Sovereign (Acts 17:26). Since He is the Creator, Holy and Sovereign He is so very different (Psalm 113:4-6). As a starters, He knows about all things, because He made them (Genesis 1:31-2:1), and in His sovereignty He sustains them (Colossians 1:17; Hebrews 1:3). As He sustains them He demonstrates His omnipotence, and His omnipresence (Proverbs 15:3; Jeremiah 23:23, 24).

So He is omnipotent, omniscient (Psalm 139:1-12), as well as being omnipresent. You can therefore observe the contrast of vast differences between God and us. By comparison we are insignificant, and yet to Him so very precious (Matthew 10:29-31), as He demonstrated by sending His only begotten Son to die for us (1 John 4:9) so that we can have a relationship with Him.

If we are to have meaningful, loving relationships with Him, we must learn about Him and have a way of communicating with Him. In these respects He does not leave us in the dark, simply to grope around for Him (Acts 17:27). Instead, He reveals Himself by coming to earth as one of us, i.e., Jesus, a Man (Matthew 1:23) with a body like other men who die, and yet without sin (Hebrews 4:15). While here on earth He tells us about Himself and His desire for us to love Him, and after His crucifixion and ascension His Father sends the Holy Spirit (John 14:26) to indwell all believers (1 Corinthians 6:19).

In our frailty, weakness and total dependency on the omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent God, by the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit we can **pray to the Father for His upholding, for strength and guidance, and for help in our present need. And, since He is the Alpha and the Omega (Revelation 1:8; 21:6; 22:13), the I AM (Exodus 3:14) who is all-knowing, all-powerful and all-present, He can satisfy (Psalm 91:16) our desires. We can be assured He will answer our prayers according to His purpose and for our good (Romans 8:28).

Because our trust is in the only God (Mark 12:32; John 14:6; 1 Timothy 2:5), He has assured us that we shall be like Him and see Him as He is (1 John 3:2). Indeed, we have a foretaste of things to come, since He has made us in His image (Genesis 1:27), and He has given us glimpses of ***His glory. By the Spirit He has already transported us to His heaven, for we have been sealed by the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13; 4:30).
