Is God Always There?

Job here asks if God is always there?

Does not he see my ways
and number all my steps?

Job 31.4

In context, Job is saying that he has taken a vow of purity and chaste conduct, particularly with what he allows himself to look at (v.1). He says, in defence of his conduct, that should he have violated this then God would surely know and would surely have sent calamity for this reason (vv.2-3). 

Although Job is defending his conduct, we can take the principle and take great comfort from it. He uses the omnipresence of God (His being everywhere) as a character witness, and we can take the same attribute and draw comfort from knowing that God is never far from each of us (Acts 17.27). 

Whatever you are doing today, however you are feeling today wherever you are going today, take comfort from knowing that God goes with you, that there is nowhere we can go to escape His presence (Psalm 139.7), and that He is a very present help in times of trouble (Psalm 46).

Is God always there? Absolutely. Call out to Him and see just how ‘there He is.
