Omnipresence in Deep Space

The infinite, omnipresence of God necessitates that there cannot be, even in the greatest expanse of space, even one blot of deep space that He does not reside over, rule entirely, and can be found.

A heathen philosopher once asked, “Where is God?” The Christian answered, “Let me first ask you, where is he not?”
(John Arrowsmith)

God is over all things, under all things; outside all; within but not enclosed; without but not excluded; above but not raised up; below but not depressed; wholly above, presiding; wholly beneath, sustaining; wholly within, filling.
(Hildebert of Lavardin)

He dwells throughout the known universe, and the uninhabited regions of immensity.
(Timothy Dwight)

God dwells in His creation and is everywhere indivisibly present in all His works. He is transcendent above all His works even while he is immanent within them.
(A. W. Tozer)

We may ignore, but we can nowhere elude, the presence of God.
(C. S. Lewis)
