All Powerful, All Knowing and Ever Present

I have been doing a sermon series this month entitled, “The Attributes and Characteristics of God – Knowing Our Creator.”  This week we are considering the omnipotence, omniscience and omnipresence of God.  That is to say, God is all powerful, all knowing and ever present.  The other evening, while I was working on the sermon and reflecting on such things, I asked the Lord to give me a greater appreciation for His attributes and how they work in perfect harmony together.  About that time, I got a text.  The text said, “Hey, can you pray for someone in Brazil? You don’t know him and I don’t either, but God does and this guy is very ill and needs prayer.”

I am always humbled and amazed at God’s timing.  Through the act of someone asking someone to ask others for prayers for a friend, I had a greater appreciation for God and who He is.  I stopped what I was doing and began to pray for someone I don’t know, who lives in a place I’ve never been, and who is dealing with a situation that I really don’t know anything about.  And although I don’t know the person, the place or the situation; I know that God does.  I know that God knows them, knows what they are going through and He is near them and able to strengthen them, comfort them and give them His peace.  God is indeed all powerful, all knowing, ever present and nothing escapes His attention.  Not you, not me and not someone’s friend in Brazil.
