The most important attributes of God are his ability to be omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient. First, God is always with his followers, guiding them through life. Job 34:21 states, “His eyes are on the ways of mortals; he sees their every step” (NIV). God is with his people every step of the way. Furthermore, God is all-powerful, capable of doing what is asked of him and more. He can do things his followers cannot comprehend doing because “…with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26 NIV). In addition to being omnipresent and omnipotent, God is omniscient- he is all-knowing. Psalm 44:21 states, “Would not God have discovered it, since he knows the secrets of the heart?” (NIV). This verse from scripture further validates the fact that God knows everything, even the things one keeps hidden in their heart. As well as God having many vital characteristics, he is also the ultimate creator. Genesis 1-2 is the account of creation through God, speaking all things into the world, into existence (“Topic 2 overview”, 2017, para. 8). God created life and everything we know that is inexistence today. In short, God is always present, all-powerful, all-knowing, and the ultimate creator. 1
