Jeremiah 23:23-24 (NIV): “Am I only a God nearby, declares the LORD, and not a God far away? Who can hide in secret places so that I cannot see them? declares the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? declares the LORD.”
These verses emphasize that God’s presence is not confined to a specific location but is everywhere, filling both the heavens and the earth. They speak of God’s constant nearness to His creation and His willingness to be present with those who seek Him. The presence of God brings comfort, guidance, joy, and a sense of assurance to believers, reminding them of His unfailing love and care.
