Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent God

Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent God

Really? Yes, Really.

by Brenda D. Flowers

Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing, you may have life in His name. (John 20: 29-31, NKJV)

During my college years, I struggled in my faith. I honestly couldn’t “see” how God could love and care about me considering how many people there were in the world.

How could He be everywhere at the same time? Was He really omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent? These words I had heard at church as a child, but I didn’t fully grasp their meaning.

Deep down, I believed there had to be a God, a Creator. I had childlike faith in Him. I knew many Bible stories and songs of faith. I had even asked Jesus to be my Savior as a 12 year old. But was I truly born again?

Questions bombarded my mind.

Was the God of the Bible truly the One True God? Could the Bible be trusted?

A professor reinforced my doubts by claiming the Bible was full of myths. But I had been taught the Bible was the inerrant word of God.

Instead of going to God with my doubts in prayer or seeking answers to my questions from seasoned Christians, I chose to focus my attention on other things. To be honest, I didn’t go to church during my college years (from 1971-1975) except when I went home for the holidays. I allowed the influence of a secular culture to pull me away from God, and as a result I felt lost.

 During graduate school, I “happened” to live on a hall where I met two new friends who were strong followers of Christ. They showed me love and kindness. They shared their personal life stories and how God had impacted them. They prayed for me and unashamedly read their Bible in my presence.

 On January 21, 1976, one of my new friends invited me to a campus event. It “happened” to be A Campus Crusade for Christ event. As I watched the movie on the portable screen that night, I heard the gospel message and these words of Jesus to questioning Nicodemus, “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (John 3: 8, NKJV)

At that moment, God spoke to me and lit the tender in my heart. I confessed my wayward ways, my sin and my doubts. I knew without a doubt that God was who He said He was and I could trust Him. I felt His omniscient presence. He became my all in all.I was born again that night.

The prefix Omni means all; of all things. I am so thankful that the all powerful, all knowing God loved me so much that He answered my questions that night. He loved me in my sinful questioning state and came to me. God’s Word, The Bible, became alive. I put my full trust in God that night.

If you “happen”to be reading my words and you have been struggling in your faith, I am here to testify you can trust the God of the Bible. There was a time in history when these words were spoken to God’s people who were in exile and I believe these are words for you right now,

Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will bring you back from your captivity. (Jeremiah 20:16, NKJV). You see I know these words are true because that is what God did for me.

God showed me who He is and He is still showing me and loving me!


  1. Praise God that He frees us from our bondages and gifts us His Holy Spirit!
