Doctrine of Divine Presence:
Is that while God dwells in His world thatHe created He is separated from it by a gulf forever impassable.When I think of Divine Presence, I am reminded of one of God’sattributes: OmnipresenceTozer establishes at least three aspects of
:a.God is near to everywhere, everyone and everythingb.God has no bordersc.God has no sizeGod can be in all places at one time…He can be with everyone, andeverything, in every place. He has no restrictions.If God is everywhere, then He could
have any borders, because aborder indicates the point at which something ends. Since God does notend, but is infinite, he cannot have borders.And God cannot have size, because size indicates that something ismeasurable. If God is infinite, He cannot be measured. (

Let’s look at Jeremiah 23:24: “Can anyone hide himself in secret places, so I shallnot see him?" says the Lord; "Do I not fill heaven and earth?" says theLord.
2 Chronicles 2:6 “But who is able to build Him a temple, since heavenand the heaven of heavens cannot contain Him...”
Solomon confessed as he was going to build a temple, God cannot behoused in a mere earthly temple since even the highest heavens cannotcontain Him.
