|The Reality of God's Omnipresence and Omniscience|
Psalm 139:1-12 (NIV)
Often as Christians we fall into the routine of living life as though God only existed in our lives in any meaningful way on Sunday mornings. We take little consideration that the Lord is there every second of every day. He sees every thought, every word, and every deed. We cannot keep anything back from God, for absolutely nothing is hidden from His gaze.
We cannot see God, nor by searching can we fully understand His ways. But because He is omniscient, He sees and knows us completely. God reveals this truth to us so that we may fear Him, and to restrain us from sinning against Him.
If you knew your husband or wife would not approve of you watching a particular television program, reading a particular book, or saying certain words would you do these things in your spouse's presence? Probably not. Yet how often do we do and say things as though God were not present seeing everything and hearing everything?
Scripture says, "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad." (2 Corinthians 5:10) When we learn to live with the reality of God's omnipresence in our lives, His complete knowledge of our every thought word and deed, we will be encouraged in a greater way to live a life pleasing to Him.
