Summary: Whereever you are, whatever you are going through, God is always there.

God Is Always There

(Faith)

Psalm 139:7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

[8] If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

God is everywhere!

Wherever we are, whatever our situation, God is there.

When we’re rejoicing in His presence, he is there.

When we’re in the hospital or at home, he is there.

When the sun is shining or when it’s raining, God is there.

God never changes. He said, I am God and I change not.

He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

He never takes his eyes off of us. He never leaves us alone. He never forsakes us. He constantly takes care of us.

For He said, I will never leave you, nor will I forsake you but I’ll be with you always even unto the end of the world.

God is literally everywhere. He fills all space and time.

Even though God is omnipresent, he is every where; he has chosen to manifest himself in a personal way to us.

Psalm 113:5 says that God “dwelleth on high.”

Joel 3:21 says that He “dwelleth in Zion.”

But now, with the outpouring of the Holy Ghost, He dwells in our hearts, and not just in our hearts but in the hearts of every believer everywhere.

Men may try to place God in certain limited locations. They may try to restrict His movements.

But the Lord God knows no boundaries. Nothing can stop him from moving.

He is unlimited by space and time.

Solomon wisely questioned, “But will God indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded?” (1 Kings 8:27)

The question has been asked, “Where does God dwell and where does He meet with His people?”

Adam and Eve “heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day. (Genesis 3:8)

The Lord spoke to Abram in his home country. He spoke to Jacob at Bethel. He spoke to Joseph in dreams. He spoke to Moses through a burning bush.

He spoke to Saul on the road to Damascus, and He spoke to John on the Isle of Patmos.

The Lord spoke to Elijah in a still small voice and He spoke to Isaiah in a magnificent vision.

And the Bible says in Hebrews 1:2 that in these last days that God hath spoken unto us by his Son.

But the greatest revelation of the presence of God to mankind is yet to come in eternity.

1 Corinthians 13:12 says, “For now we see through a glass darkly.”

For now we can gain God’s attention by having a contrite spirit, and by obeying His Word. (Isaiah 66:2)

We can invite the presence of the Lord into our hearts by praising and adoring our King. (Psalm 22:3)

But the day will come when we shall see our Savior face to face!

It is so awesome to know that God came to this world as a man!

The Word was made flesh and blood. (John 1:14)

The King of Glory became as one of us and walked among us as a man. (Hebrews 2:14-17)

Jesus Christ was God’s temple while He was on this earth.

The Jews heard the Jesus correctly when He said, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. (John 2:19)

But they did not understand His message. He was not referring to a destruction of Herod’s house.

He was talking about the death and resurrection of his own body; the place where God dwelt in radiant fullness.

Ezekiel 48:30 And these are the goings out of the city on the north side, four thousand and five hundred measures.

[31] And the gates of the city shall be after the names of the tribes of Israel: three gates northward; one gate of Reuben, one gate of Judah, one gate of Levi.

[32] And at the east side four thousand and five hundred: and three gates; and one gate of Joseph, one gate of Benjamin, one gate of Dan.

[33] And at the south side four thousand and five hundred measures: and three gates; one gate of Simeon, one gate of Issachar, one gate of Zebulun.

[34] At the west side four thousand and five hundred, with their three gates; one gate of Gad, one gate of Asher, one gate of Naphtali.

[35] It was round about eighteen thousand measures: and the name of the city from that day shall be, The Lord is there.

It was in this book of Ezekiel that the prophet saw a vision of the city of God.

This is the same city that John the revelator describes in Revelation 21.
