God Is Omnipresent

"The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good." (Proverbs 15:3)

"Pretend I'm there and behave accordingly!"

Those were the words of a note Annie received in sixth grade. Her mom had gone on a long trip and had left that note to remind her that – even though she was gone – she expected Annie to act the same way she would have if her mom were still there.

Pretending her mom was watching her made Annie act differently. Sbe did her homework. She practiced the piano. She obeyed her teacher. She cleaned her room. She knew if Mom found out that she did wrong, she was in big trouble.

Did you know that God is always watching? He doesn't go on vacation, and He never sleeps. He is in the United States of America, and He is in Africa, and He is in church, and He is in your bedroom – all at the same time. God is omnipresent – everywhere at one time. His eyes are everywhere, seeing the good and seeing the bad.

David, one of the many men God used to write down His words, said in Psalm 139: 7, "Whither shall I go from thy spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence?" In other words – is there any place where we can hide from God? David's answer: no.

A child of God cannot hide from Him. God is watching us when we are scared. He protects us when we are in trouble. He holds our hand when we need help. He hears us when we cry. He is happy when we rejoice. He also knows when we sin, and He loves us too much to let us get away with it.

Know that God is there – and behave accordingly!

God is everywhere, seeing everything.

My Response:
» Will I behave differently today if I remember that God is always watching?

Question & Answer

QIf someone thinks he is a Christian, but shows no evidence of spiritual change – what should he do?

AHe should examine his life in the light of Scripture to see if he is truly "in the faith." 2 Corinthians 13:5 – Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

 

BIG Christian Word

Justification - (jus'ta-fa-ka'shun)

Justification is an act done in an instant by God in which he 1) thinks of our sins as forgiven and Christ's righteousness as belonging to us and 2) declares us to be righteous in his sight. Justification is just as if we never sinned. We are declared not guilty. It is the opposite of condemnation when a person is declared guilty. (Romans 5:1) "Therefore being justified, by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
