God is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. So why do we struggle to trust Him when our lives get chaotic?

Jeremiah 32:17

Ah, Lord GOD! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.

God Is Omnipotent

The word “omnipotent” means all powerful, and that is exactly what God is. God does what He pleases in the storms, on land, or in the ocean depths (Psalm 135:6). He makes the clouds rise and directs the lightning and wind (Jeremiah 51:16). He is sovereign over all the earth and over all circumstances. Is anyone able to enter the storehouses of hail He has preserved (Job 38:33)? He simply commands the snow to fall on the earth and says to the showers, “Be a mighty downpour” (Job 37:6). God only had to speak and the earth and universe came into existence (Psalm 33:9; Heb. 11:3). If you want to see the omnipotence of God, simply read the last few chapters of the Book of Job. All He needs to do is speak and a tempest lifts the waves (Psalm 107:25). So why would we ever struggle to trust the great, omnipotent God when a tempest turns our life into chaos?

God Is Omnipresent

The word “omnipresent” means to be present in all places at all times. We already know that God is everywhere, always, at all times, so there is no place to run and be from His presence (Psalm 139:7-8). Jonah tried but failed to run from God, so God simply hurled a great storm in His purpose to pursue and capture him (Jonah 1:4). He is even present with us in our times of trouble (Psalm 46:1) and is all places at the same time from heaven to the grave (Psalm 139:8).. He is in the storms (Nahum 1:3), and the darkness is like daylight to Him (Psalm 139:11-12). So again I ask, why would we ever need to worry when our lives turn chaotic since God is Omnipresent?

God Is Omniscient

The word “omniscient” is from the word for all “omni” knowing “science,” which means that God is all-knowing. He knows our hearts (1 John 3:20). He knows everything about us, including every hair on our head (Matt. 10:29-30). He knows what we will speak before the word is even in out of our mouth (Psalm 139:4). He is acquainted with all of our ways (Psalm 1391-3) and knows the heart of all mankind (1 Kings 8:39). Jesus, being God, knew what was in the hearts of all men (Matt. 9:4) and makes known the end from the very beginning of time (Isaiah 46:10) so once more I ask, since God is omniscient, why don’t we trust Him when everything about us turns to chaos?

A Closing Prayer

Father, You are all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-present. Help me to understand that no chaotic event in my life ever takes You by surprise, so I need to trust You in all things and at all times. Forgive me for the times when I don’t, and in Jesus’ name I pray.
