Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The Omnipotent God - The LION Of Judah - The Power Of God - The Omnipresence Of God
Power To Be Near
The LORD [is] near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit.
Consider the simplicity of human limitations. Our ability as people is based on where we are, physically or philosophically. Can we be helpful when we’re distant and unavailable? Those who are “there” are best qualified to help. This is why the omnipresence of God is such an important facet of His power. He has the power to be in all places at all times in order to be near those who are in need, are humble to admit the need, and seek Him for it. It is true that God has the power to judge, but also to be near the humble to protect from His judgments. God’s power doesn’t make Him distant. It makes Him able to be close in our time of need.
