The Omnipresence of God

Two verses, the ninth and tenth, of the one hundred and thirty-ninth psalm beautifully refer to the omnipresence of God and His guiding and protecting power. They read, "If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me." The thought of the Psalmist must have been very spiritual for him to have written them, since not otherwise could he have penetrated the illusory barriers of material sense and perceived the spiritual fact of the omnipresence of God, and that everywhere His loving care is extended to His creation.

Long years after the psalm was written, Christ Jesus brought his inspired message to men, telling them of the fatherhood of God; that all were God's children, and that He loved them with a love beyond the power of human skill to estimate. Setting an example to his followers of all time, Jesus communed at will with the Father, thereby receiving His guidance and proving Him to be omnipresent. The Master could constantly avail himself of the healing presence of God; and that he did so is shown by the many miracles he performed, for all manner of disease and sin were healed by him during his three years' ministry in Palestine.
