Alone With God

Scripture: “Where can I go from your Spirit? Or where can I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there; if I make my bed in Sheol (the nether world, the place of the dead), behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the dawn, if I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will take hold me. If I say, “Surely the darkness will cover me, and the night will be the only light around me.” Even the darkness is not dark to You and conceals nothing from You. But the night shines as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You. (Ps.139:7-12 Ampl. Bible)

The theme here is God’s Omnipresence, which means God is always present everywhere. God’s omnipresence is one of His essential attributes. He is aware of everything in all three realms, heaven, earth, and below the earth. He is not limited by time or space. We cannot see God, because He is a spirit. But He sees us and there is nowhere on earth or any other place that God cannot see us. Darkness cannot hide us because darkness is as light to Him (v.12).

Nothing Can Separate Us From God

For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced, beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

God is Omnipotent which means He’s all-powerful and mighty. His power is seen clearly in His creation. “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him”; (Colossians 1:16). This statement is clear, God is the Creator and Ruler over all authorities whether they submit or rebel against Him. God says, “Let there be” and it is so, this phrase speaks of the power of God. As Creator, God created both heaven and earth, He is Lord overall. His power continues to hold us in a state of grace despite our sins; His power keeps us from falling (Jude 24).

God is Omniscient, meaning He is all-wise. He knows past, present, and future events. The indwelling presence of His Spirit means the Holy Spirit resides within us. The Holy Spirit is the wisdom of God available to and for us. He possesses the same characteristics as God. He’s always present, all-wise and knowing, and He sees and hears everything. His omniscience goes beyond man’s comprehension and His understanding is unsearchable.

Secret sins are revealed, they lie open before Him. The sinner desires to flee but there is no refuge; you cannot escape righteous judgment. The Psalmist said, “If I make my bed in hell you are there too” (v.8). There is no hasty flight, there’s nowhere in hell to hide.

It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him (Daniel 2:22 Amp. Bible).

Having disarmed the powers and authorities Jesus made a public spectacle of them; (Colossians 2:15). Therefore, we need not worry or fear because God took care of every detail, and nothing can separate us from His love. The Apostle Paul wrote, “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”; (Romans 8:35-39 KJV). Your salvation is forever kept and sealed in heaven.

May God’s love and grace surround you always. Dwell in His peace friends.

Blessings of my love to you!
