God is always present. That’s a comforting revelation from the Bible. Understanding this—seeing God as infinite, omnipresent Spirit—dispels the view of a patriarch who dwells in the sky dispensing wisdom from a distance.
While this truth is reassuring, it can sometimes seem elusive. But it really isn’t. Christ Jesus fulfilled Hebrew prophecy (see Isaiah 7:14), bringing to light the immanent sense of “God with us” known as Immanuel.
The Savior’s words show that he was continuously aware of his unity with his divine Parent: “I and my Father are one” (John 10:30). Jesus’ certainty of this oneness enabled him to feed multitudes, walk on the water, redeem sin, and heal every type of illness and disability.
