OMNISCIENCE OF GOD
God’s eye is upon every hour of my existence. His Spirit is intimately present with every thought of my heart. His inspiration gives birth to every purpose within me. His Hand impresses a direction on every footstep of my goings. Every breath I inhale is drawn by an energy which God deals out to me. This body which, upon the slightest derangement, would become the prey of death, or of woeful suffering, is now at ease, because He at this moment is warding off from me a thousand dangers, and upholding a thousand movements of its complex and delicate machinery. His presiding influence keeps me through the whole current of my restless and ever-changing history. When I walk by the wayside. He is along with me. When I enter into company, amid all my forgetfulness of Him, He never forgets me. In the silent watches of the night, when my eyelids have closed, and my spirit has sunk into unconsciousness, the observant eye of Him who never slumbers is upon me. I cannot fly from His presence. Go where I will. He tends me and watches me, and cares for me; and the same Being who is now at work in the remotest domains of Nature and of Providence, is also at my right hand to eke out to me every moment of my being, and to uphold me in the exercise of all my feelings, and of all my faculties.
Thomas Chalmers (1780-1847)
