He is Ubiquitous

Psalm 139:5 You have enclosed me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me.

Have you ever thought of a word that you’ve never heard before and wonder if it’s a real word? I find ever so often I I could be doing something an all of a sudden I hear this word and I can’t seem to get it out of my head. I wonder what it means. It happened again this morning.

I was in the shower and I was just thanking God for who he is. I try to give him thanks throughout my day and in the midst of whatever I’m doing. And being the first think in the morning I just wanted to say thank you. But I heard the word Ubiquitous and I’m like what? And then I kept repeating it in my mind over and over again. After I got out I went on about my morning getting ready for work. I finished got the girls and off we went.

I’ve had a busy day so far and hadn’t thought about the word again. But here I am back in my office after going to a meeting and training a new employee and I hear this word again. Since I’m now in from of my computer I decide to stop what I’m doing and look it up.

Ubiquitous means existing or being everywhere, especially at the same time; omnipresent.

Okay stop the press! Lord I hear you. All I want know is to seek him and know what it is I need to do. I love the ways God will grab your attention. It’s not conventional and often times, unless its a corporate call, it’s tailored specifically to you. It’s like how we know to get our children’s attention. We know them by their personalities and differences from one another and we address them, call them, tend to them according to their uniqueness.

So I got it. God was letting me know for whatever reason that He has not left me, nor can I run, hide or leave him. He is everywhere, all the time. That’s my word for the day.

Here are some scriptures about God’s Omnipresence.

Created In His Image

In the very beginning, God creates all things. Genesis 1:1-2:3

Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like ourselves. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”

So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
(Genesis 1:26-27)

God created us human beings different from the way he created other animals. He created us in his image, both male and female,and he gave us authority over all other living creatures on this earth. This gives us considerable value and invokes an important question to be answered: In what ways are we made in the image of God?

God discernibly did not create us exactly like himself, because He has no physical body that can be touched. Instead, we are a reflection God’s glory. Ingrained within us being our speech, reason, self-determination, and creativity is what some believe is the image of God. More likely so it is our entire self that reflects the image of God. We can never totally be like God because he is our supreme creator. But what we do have is the ability to reflect his character in our love, patience, kindness, faithfulness, and forgiveness.

Being sure that we are made in the image of God and planted on the inside of us are his characteristics provides a solid basis for increased self-esteem and respect for one’s self. Self-worth is not based on physical attractiveness, possessions, public acclaim, or achievements. It is however based on being made in the image of God. Because we reflect God’s image, we can feel confident in who we are. To Criticize ourselves is to discount how God has made us and the abilities he has given us.

Knowing that you are a person of great value helps you love God, know him on a person level, and give meaning to the lives of those around you.

Thank God for his creating you in his image. You are an extremely unique creation and he loves you. Thank him for all of the special gifts, talents, abilities, physical characteristics, emotional makeup, and personality that make you who you are.
