Attribute #7C or ‘God is Omnipresent’


4C Simplicity (Obey what you know) 5C Unity (Keep unity in your spiritual life) 6C Sovereignty (plan your life, then surrender to God)

Copy from Prayer Notebook:

PR 15.3 7C. Omnipresent (everywhere)

I Cannot escape His influence (compares closely to 1C IMMENSITY, or INFINITY [Endless])

Proverbs 15:3

The eyes of the Lord are in every place, Keeping watch on the evil and the good.

[personal application:] This enables God 1)to judge and reward my works, 2)to answer my prayer for anyone in any place I or they are in. Imagine that!

Significant Scripture passages:

Pr 5:21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.

2Ch 16:9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.

Job 34:21 For his eyes are upon the ways of man, and he seeth all his goings.

Job 34:22 There is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.

Jer 16:17 For mine eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid from my face, neither is their iniquity hid from mine eyes.

Jer 23:24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.

Jer 32:19 Great in counsel, and mighty in work: for thine eyes are open upon all the ways of the sons of men: to give every one according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings:

Heb 4:13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

Psalm 139

7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;

10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.

12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.


Definition and Notes:

3 Authors to Help Us Understand God’s Omnipresence

"...God, in the totality of His existence, without diffusion or expansion, multiplication or division, penetrates and fills the universe in all its parts." – Augustus Strong, Systematic Theology, p. 279 diffusion=being spread out, not centered in one place; expansion=to make or grow bigger or wider, as by unfolding, puffing out, or spreading.

"...His infinitude in relation to His creatures. Because God is immense, He is omnipresent." – Henry Thiessen, Lectures in Systematic Theology, p. 124.

"God is everywhere (not in everything, that is pantheism.) – Charles Ryrie, A Synopsis of Bible Doctrine, Attributes of God. [The Ryrie Study Bible, p. 1935] Compare: "Infinity. = Without termination and finitude." (coming to and end, having definite limits)

Illustrations of God’s Omnipresence in Scripture.

– God’s influence manifested, or caused to be revealed.

– When Moses saw the burning bush, His presence caused Moses to have to take his sandal off and act differently because of it [Exodus 3.5ff] and later

– Joshua also before the Captain of the Lord’s Army (Pre-incarnate Jesus, probably) [Joshua 5.14] removed his foot coverings.

– Isaiah (6:1-3) , before God’s presence, heard "Holy, Holy, Holy..." then the door posts shook, and the house filled with smoke.

God can manifest, or make known, the fact of His presence, though He is not required to do this. In Ex 33.14-16 Moses felt constrained to humbly ask for God’s presence to remain.

All these are illustrations of the fact that God maintains a presence whether or not it is manifested in this world He has made.


  • Live each moment of life in the fear of God. He sees every attitude, thought, and deed of life. We cannot hide from Him nor can we cover anything done in secret. Heb 4:13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
  • Rest in the fact that God sees all the attitudes, thoughts, and deeds of others. He will bring His judgment to pass in a perfect way. There is no room for Repaying evil done to myself or those I love but others. Trust in God’s divine retribution
  • Pray with supernatural effect! If God is truly everywhere, His presence is available to help anyone I may pray for WHEREVER they are even if it is a world away. I can pray for supernatural things from God and not have to leave my home or even bedroom!
