What’s the answer to this riddle?

What do we have

God is omnipotent. Right. He is omniscient. He made everything in heaven and on earth. Right? He is Spirit. He is all-seeing. He is all-knowing. Right? He created you and me and He gave us everything. Right?

Then, how could we have something He doesn’t?  We’re not counting our sin or our evil or our disobedience.

What do we have that God does not?
A shadow.
God doesn’t have a shadow because He’s omnipresent.  He’s everywhere, every second of every day.  There is not a place in heaven or on earth where He is not.  What He reflects is love and light wherever He is. Which is everywhere at once.

Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
    if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
    your right hand will hold me fast.
Psalm 139:7-10

About Steven Sawyer

God blessed me with the gift of writing. Mom told me I wrote paragraphs in second grade when others were learning to write sentences. I spent more than three decades in professional writing gigs. For the past eight years I've combined my passion for writing with my love for the Lord. He and I write a Christ-centered, family-friendly blog to glorify God Monday-thru Friday at https://stevensawyer.wordpress.com/. My wife and I have four grown children and two precious granddaughters we co-parent with their mom. I'm a Galatians 2:20 disciple of Christ seeking to allow Christ to live His life in me, through me, and as me.
