"God cannot be obscured"

Counteracting the all too prevalent feeling of insecurity today is the indisputable fact that God is omnipotent. The understanding of this fact, coupled with the realization that God and man are inseparable, repudiates the suggestion of instability and at the same time supplies needful courage for every right endeavor.

God is manifested, reflected, in man, His likeness. The divine presence is never absent; it needs only to be recognized. It is a living, loving, tangible reality, and there is perfect security for all who understandingly seek refuge in Him. His omnipresence and omnipotence are revealed throughout the inspired Word of the Scriptures. The prophet Jeremiah represents Him as saying, "Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord;" while in the Gospel of John we find His allness declared in these meaningful words: "All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made."

The human mind, failing to grasp the significance of His allness, gropes in the darkness of believing that without Him there were many things made. This false belief is accompanied at times by an overwhelming sense of insecurity and fear of loss; however, the allness of God, infinite Spirit, excludes aught that is unlike Him. Can there be something more than all? Can there be something outside of or beyond infinity? No; hence matter, with all its claims of precariousness, does not really exist. The infinity of good affords a sure foundation, indeed, against which the waves of suppositional evil dash themselves in vain.
