Visible Everywhere (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 123)
Jeremiah 23:24 (NLT)
“Can anyone hide from me in a secret place? Am I not everywhere in all the heavens and earth?” says the Lord.
Drones seem to have become man’s latest fear. It comes out of nowhere and hovers over our houses, our schools, or our places of employment. It sees things that are out of our range of vision. It picks up on sounds and syllables that the average listener would not hear.
In truth, a drone is nothing to fear. While it seems to be everywhere, in reality, it is only in a few places. There is, however, someone who is more powerful and important who is everywhere all at the same time. God’s omnipresence demands respect and strikes a healthy fear in our hearts.
God sees us every minute of every day. There is no time that He is not watching us, protecting us, and seeking to guide our thoughts, steps, and actions. Take a moment to reflect on the presence of God in the world and in your life. Take comfort in knowing that God is with you wherever you go.
God doesn’t just rule over the heavens and earth. He is much deeper than that. His presence and His divine providence fills the universe. No place can include Him or exclude Him from the environment. Our intentions and actions cannot be hid. Nothing can be concealed from His sight. He sees. he hears. He knows. He is everywhere and we can rest safely under the all-seeing eye of God.
“God’s knowledge is linked to his sovereignty: he knows each thing, both in itself and in relation to all other things, because he created it, sustains it, and now makes it function every moment according to his plan for it. The idea that God could know, and foreknow, everything without controlling everything seems not only unscriptural but nonsensical.”
