The Three Omni’s

Among the many attributes of God, stand three omni’s: omnipotent, omniscience, and omnipresence. The prefix omni comes from the Latin word omnis, and refers to all, and without limits.

Omnipotence refers to God’s ability to fulfill everything that He wills. His power is unlimited and without bounds (see Job 42:2; Genesis 18:14; Jeremiah 32:27) yet it is important to note that God cannot lie, sin, deny himself, or be tempted with evil. He cannot act in a way inconsistent with any of His attributes.

Omniscience refers to God’s knowledge of all things and is absolutely perfect in knowledge in nature (Psalm 147:4) and in the human experience (Matthew 10:29-30; 1 Corinthians 1:10-11). In Matthew 6:8, Jesus reminds us that the Father knows our needs even before we ask. God’s knowledge is complete – it never grows or has a need to grow.

Omnipresence means God is present everywhere at all points in time and in complete fullness of His being. There is no place where God is not present (Psalm 139:7-10). In His omnipresence we can find comfort from hurting and pain knowing He is near. We are also reminded that there is no hiding from God when we choose to sin.

Through these three omni’s we can take comfort that God is our all-in-all (Philippians 4:19) and if we are willing to relinquish our role as master of our own lives, we can truly experience a life abundant in our Lord (Ephesians 3:20).

But it requires trust. We must place our trust in God and allow Him to work in our lives so that we can express as David expressed in Psalm 23:1, “I shall not want.” The Creator of all knows our needs and His power is limitless to fulfill in us all He wants us to be. The question is, do we want Him interfering in our plans?

Let God be the source of your strength; lean on Him, cast your burdens on Him alone, and allow yourself to become weak so He may become strong in you. When you accepted Christ as your Savior, the power of the Holy Spirit took up residence in your heart. Do not quench His power by self-aggrandizement; but rather pray for His power to be made manifest in all you say and do.

Rejoice in knowing that wherever you go, He is with you (Psalm 23:4). Exalt Him in the high times of your life and praise Him for not forsaking you during the lows. “Fear thou not, for I am with thee; be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness” (Isaiah 41:10).

Our God is Omnis. He is the Alpha and the Omega, and you can have Him by your side right now if you will open your heart to Jesus Christ.
