If I start off by answering in knowledge that God is ALL, God is The Creator, The beginning and the end, God IS everywhere. I would merely be broaching on the surface! So, how do we approach The Beginning Who knows the end before it started. The ALL MIGHTY playWrite! Glory Hallelujah, the end of His-story is KNOWN from the beginning. We are ‘actors’ on the stage of life. Each with their part to play, are you read up? Ready? Willing? Whether or not you are, you have a part, be awesome at your role…
We worship by adoring God.
We don’t worship God because life is good. We worship God because is good! —Darlene Zschech
We will start off by discussed what worship is and why we should worship God. It’s easy to worship God when we have ample blessings in our lives, and when He says yes to our prayers. We can and we should worship Him for those things! But, first and foremost, we worship Him for who He is.
Did you know that God is omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent? What do these big “omni” words actually mean? Well, omni is a Latin root that simply means “all.” And while none of these words are actually mentioned in Scripture, they do identify the truth about God that we gather from it. Let’s dive in a little deeper to each of these attributes of God.
God is “all” present. He is everywhere, all the time, close to everyone and everything. He fills all of heaven and earth. Often as Christ followers, we might pray, “God, please be with me today.” While the petition of God’s presence shows our need for Him, this prayer is actually unnecessary. He is already here and there and elsewhere and all over the place, all the time. What our request should be instead is, “God, please make me of your presence.”
God is “all” knowing. In regard to knowledge, there is no limit with God. He has it all, and He knows it all. Literally. There is not a second that goes by where God is not aware of everything. There is absolutely nothing that He should learn or have to think about. He is never caught off guard or surprised by anything, ever. He just knows. Mind blowing, isn’t it? And isn’t it comforting to know that God knows our needs before we even ask?
God is “all” powerful. All power belongs to God. He possesses it all. He can do anything and everything. He never gets winded, and He never grows weary. His strength is never zapped, and He never has to take a nap. We may see impossible things in front of us, but with God, all things are possible.
It truly is phenomenal to even comprehend just a portion of who He is. That is where our worshiping Him for who He is should come easy. When we don’t understand something, just worship.
- Read through Psalm 145, and declare it to your God as you do.
- Of the three “omni” words mentioned above, which one fascinates you the most? Spend some time thinking about that facet of who God is, and worship and thank Him for who He is.
