Bible Verse: “There is none like You among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like Yours…For You are great and do wondrous things; You alone are God.” Psalm 86:8; v.10
Scripture Reading: Romans 11:33-36; Psalm 139:1-18
Every man has things in his life where he knows he is good. This can happen at work, in relationships, education, sports, or other areas. But as much as you know you are good at some things, there are parts of life where other people are better. This is not a problem that God has.
Three words give us a taste of how all-consuming God’s greatness is: “Omnipotence,” “Omniscience,” and “Omnipresence.” As you can see, each word starts with “omni,” from the Latin word meaning “all.”
God is omnipotent. He is all-powerful. God has complete control over everything and does precisely what He wants to do when He wants to do it. Nothing can stand in God’s way, and nothing is too complicated for Him (Genesis 18:14). Nations and political leaders think they have power, but they only exist because God has determined it (Acts 17:26; Isaiah 44:28). And as we read in Psalm 139, God is so mighty that He knit you together in your mother’s womb. Everything in existence is ultimately under the power of God.
God is omniscient. If you aren’t sure how to pronounce this word – put a “shh” in it. God is “omni’shh’ent.” This means God is all-knowing. When you are in the presence of someone who knows more than you, the wise thing to do is to be quiet and listen to them. You can put all the most brilliant minds on the planet in one room, and they are not even scratching the surface of how much God knows. He knows everything about everything, including everything there is to know about you. Yes, even the parts of your life you don’t want to talk about because they are a little too personal.
God is omnipresent. He is everywhere, all the time. When you are hurt – God is there. When you have the best day of your life – God is there. When you want to hide from God – He is there too. Not only is He everywhere for you, but in every part of the universe, all simultaneously.
This is a picture of the God who commands you to worship and love Him.
Prayer: God, thank you for the gift of limitations. As I face the limits of my life or the people around me, help me remember that You are all.
Reflection: Pay attention to how your day unfolds and how the news worldwide unfolds. Look for signs of the omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent God.
