Exodus 2:8-9
And Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Go.” So the maiden went and called the child’s mother. Then Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Take this child away and nurse him for me, and I will give you your wages. ” So the woman took the child and nursed him.

Theologians use three words that begin with the prefix “omni,” all based on Scripture, to describe God. “Omnipotent” declares that He is all powerful. No one nor anything is stronger than God. Through the prophet Jeremiah, God said, “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?” (Jeremiah 32:27). The implied answer is no!

God is also described as “omnipresent” (present everywhere). The psalmist asks, “Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?” (Psalm 139:7). He goes on to say, “If I ascend into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me” (vv. 8- 10). No perilous pit is so deep or mountain peak so high that God is not there.

Furthermore, God is “omniscient” (all-knowing). Embedded in this descriptive term is the root word science, which means knowl edge. There is nothing that God doesn’t know. Jeremiah confesses, “Who would not fear You, O King of the nations? For this is Your rightful due. For among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their kingdoms, there is none like You” (Jeremiah 10:7).

It is in this “omni” God that Jochebed, the mother of Moses, placed her trust; and He not only returned her son to her, but arranged circumstances so that she got paid to care for her own child. Only the God of all gods could do that.

No challenge is too great for an omnipo tent, omniscient, omnipresent God. If you are faced today with a difficult problem, place it in God’s hands and let the omni God work out the solution. You can be sure that no detail will be overlooked or loose end left untied. God’s answers are always far more satisfying than anything we might be able to accomplish.
