WHAT GOD KNOWS – all knowing (omniscient)

Guts of you Everything about you
Physical You Mental you
Home Away
Everything I do Everything I say
In front (future) Behind (past)


But despite this:

  • Hand of blessing – blows me away – too great to understand!

WHERE GOD IS – everywhere! (omnipresence)

Can’t escape Spirit Can’t escape presence
Heaven Grave/death
East to west at speed! Furthest


Hand will guide, strength will support – all powerful! (omnipotence)

Darkness Light
Sin Holy



Parts Whole
Wondrous Complex
Workmanship Marvellous



  1. Enough that He wants to spend time with you.



6 Week Challenge:

  1. Read a part of your Bible
  2. Ask: what does this make me think about?
  3. Write down something that stands out for you.
  4. At the end of the day, have a look over what you’ve written.


Hebrews 10:19-25

  1. Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,
  2. by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is His body,
  3. and since we have a great priest over the house of God,
  4. let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.
  5. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
  6. and let us consider how we may spur one another on towards love and good deeds,
  7. not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

John 14:2-3

  • In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
