“All Things Are Present with Me”

Moses 1:6

6 And I have a work for thee, Moses, my son; and thou art in the similitude of mine Only Begotten; and mine Only Begotten is and shall be the Savior, for he is full of grace and truth; but there is no God beside me, and all things are present with me, for I know them all.

Elder Neal A. Maxwell wrote:

“God does not live in the dimension of time as do we. We are not only hampered by our finiteness (experiential and intellectual), but also by being in the dimension of time. Moreover, God, since ‘all things are present’ with Him, is not simply predicting based solely on the past. In ways that are not clear to us, He sees rather than foresees the future, because all things are at once present before Him.”
