Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
Omnipresent means God being everywhere at the same time. Not only is he everywhere at the same time, He is PRESENT everywhere at the same time. That means that He hears us and He is in the room with us. He is not focused on something else while He is with you. His focus is on you. When God says that He is always with us, He is talking about the Holy Spirit. (Isaiah 43:2)
When I think of the Holy Spirit being Omnipresent it gives me great comfort. We have been going through a season where we have not been able see family or friends but the Holy Spirit has been everywhere. We have been restricted but the Holy Spirit has not. The Holy Spirit has been able to be with our loved ones even when we have not.
There are two ways in which the Holy Spirit is known. First is that the Holy Spirit is in everything, all creation and all of heaven and earth. His Omnipresence, it is all around us. We have to be careful with this aspect of the Holy Spirit as it is not very noticeable. It fits into everyday life very easily and sometimes we can take it for granted. It is the breath in our lungs, the sunrise every morning, the flowers that grow in the garden, the birds that sing, the kindness in a stranger, a divine appointment. The Holy Spirit gently directing our days.
The second is the manifest presence of the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit is so tangible you can feel it in the air, you can feel it when you walk into a specific place. A great example of this is when the Holy Spirit first came in the book of Acts. The Holy Spirit came in POWER, they could feel it, they could see it. It was hard to miss!
My prayer for us today is that we would have our eyes opened so that we will see the Holy Spirit working in our everyday and that we would not miss it!
