Omnipresence of God
Is his ubiquity, or his being present in every place. This may be argued from his infinity, Psalms 139:1-24 : his power, which is every where, Hebrews 1:3; his providence, Acts 17:27-28 , which supplies all. As he is a spirit, he is so omnipresent as not to be mixed with the creature, or divided, part in one place, and part in another; nor is he multiplied or extended, but is essentially present every where. From the consideration of this attribute we should learn to fear and reverence God, Psalms 89:7 . To derive consolation in the hour of distress, Is. 43: 2. Psalms 46:1 . To be active and diligent in holy services, Psalms 119:168 .
