Jesus Holds Creation and Us In His Hands

Thinking about how God created everything is mind boggling.  We get an even greater sense of awe when we consider that Jesus holds it all together and keeps creation going in perfect timing.

Colossians 1:15-17 tells us, “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.  For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers.  All things were created through Him and for Him.  And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.  (NKJV)

Not only did He create the universe and the earth, and keeps all of them functioning in perfect timing, but He created each one of us.  He wants to hold each of us together too.  When we stubbornly go our own way, He keeps reaching out to get our attention.  However, we suffer the consequences of our wrong choices.  In His love, He is there waiting for us to turn to Him and to allow Him to hold us in His arms of love and to restore our lives.  Jesus longs to speak to us and reveal Himself to us.  It’s our choice to let Him.

As you spend time in your daily devotions today, contemplate how the great Creator God wants to hold your life together.  Spend some time praying and yielding – allowing Him to work in you.
