“Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the dawn,
If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
Even there Your hand will lead me,
And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
If I say, ‘Surely the darkness will overwhelm me,
And the light around me will be night,’
Even the darkness is not dark to You,
And the night is as bright as the day.
Darkness and light are alike to You.”
“Omnipresence is an attribute of God alone. It is the quality of being present in all places at all times. He is not bound by time and space. If there are alternate dimensions, He is there. If there are alternate realities, He is there. God’s omnipresence does not mean that nature is a part of God (pantheism, panentheism) and is, therefore, to be worshipped. Creation is separate from God, is created by Him, but it is not independent of Him since it exists because of Him.”
God created all things, governs all things, knows all things, and fills all things. There is no place we can go that would cause us to be outside of God’s presence. There is no place to hide from God if we are in sin, and there is no chance of Him leaving us when we need Him.
David says, “Where can I go from your Spirit?” (vs. 7). In other words, the Holy Spirit of God is in all places at all times. We are made of flesh, therefore we can only be in one place at any given time and we are visible wherever we are. But God dwells everywhere by His Holy Spirit. So though God sees us, we cannot see Him.
In Jeremiah 23:24, God asks if it is possible for a person to go somewhere that God would not see them:
“‘Can a man hide himself in hiding places so I do not see him?’ declares the LORD. ‘Do I not fill the heavens and the earth?’ declares the LORD.” Jeremiah 23:24
God is literally in every place in all the earth and throughout every galaxy and universe and beyond.
“The eyes of the LORD are in every place, watching the evil and the good.” Proverbs 15:3
