Quotes about God-Omnipresence


When you wish to do something evil, you retire from the public into your house where no enemy may see you; from those places of your house which are open and visible to the eyes of men you remove yourself into your room; even in your room you fear some witness from another quarter; you retire into your heart, there you mediate: He is more inward than your heart. Wherever, therefore, you shall have fled, there He is. From yourself, whither will you flee? Will you not follow yourself wherever you shall flee? But since there is One more inward even than yourself, there is no place where you may flee from God angry but to God reconciled. There is no place at all whither you may flee. Will you flee from Him? Flee unto Him.


Though heaven be God’s palace, yet it is not his prison.


Heaven is the palace, or presence-chamber, of the Supreme Being who is both the cause and source of all holy love. God, indeed, with respect to His essence is everywhere. He fills heaven and earth. But yet He is said on some accounts more especially to be in some places rather than others. He was said of old to dwell in the land of Israel above all other lands, and in Jerusalem above all other cities in that land, and in the temple above all other houses in that city, and in the holy of holies above all other apartments in that temple, and on the mercy seat over the ark above all other places in the holy of holies. But heaven is His dwelling place above all other places in the universe.


Transcendance means that God is greater than and independent of the creation. Immensity refers to the fact that God transcends and fills all space. And omnipresence indicates that God is present with every point of space in His entire being.





A heathen philosopher once asked, “Where is God?” The Christian answered: “Let me first ask you, where is He not?” (John Arrowsmith).


God’s whole being is present in every part of space, or at every point in space, it is also necessary to say that God cannot be contained by any space, no matter how large (Wayne Grudem and Jeff Purswell).


We should always honor and reverence Him as if we were always in His bodily presence.


God dwells in His creation and is everywhere indivisibly present in all His works.  He is transcendent above all His works even while He is immanent within them.


God’s center is everywhere, His circumference nowhere.
