Real meaning of God is said to be ‘omnipresent’
The unimaginable God exists everywhere through His unimaginable power


God is said to be omnipresent. It means, God exists everywhere in the space. By this, you should not think that God pervades the entire space and hence God exists everywhere. This logic applies to the imaginable objects. If you say that the air is everywhere in the room, it means that the air is pervading all over the room. Both air and room are imaginable objects with spatial dimensions. The molecules of air occupy some little space and this is the real volume of the air. Under high pressure, such real volume can be measured. Therefore, air has spatial dimensions.

In ordinary conditions, the molecules move freely in the room and the space of the room is available for the free movement of the molecules. Hence, the air is said to have the volume of room or container, which is the space available for the free movement of the molecules in this context. When you say that the light pervaded all over the space of the room, the light energy has waves having certain wave length. Length is a dimension of the space. Thus, all conclusions are based on the items having spatial dimensions. The logic derived based on such conclusions cannot be applied to God having no spatial dimensions.

The world is imaginable item having spatial dimensions. But, God pervading the world has no spatial dimensions. Therefore, you cannot say that God pervades all over the world like the air or light in the room and hence God exists everywhere. You should say that God is present everywhere because He is beyond space. The unimaginable God exists everywhere through His unimaginable power. You should be very careful in understanding the meaning of the word ‘omnipresent’ in the case of God.
