He's Got the Whole World!

"In Him all things consist" Colossians 1:17

I have been thinking about the Lord and how he sustains our entire universe! As a young child I learned the song "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands" and had it sung to me many times as a youngster.  I sang it to my own children and grandchild when they were small.  In Catholic school, a girl one year younger than me always portrayed the Christ Child during the All Saints Parade (November 1). Her mother made a beautiful costume which consisted of a while velvet cloak trimmed in fur and she wore a gold crown on her head! In her hand she carried a small replica of the world. I thought about it than and I still think about it today, how in the world does He manage it all? He is so amazing.
Think about the stars in the sky. "He counts the number of stars; He gives names to all of them." Psalm 147:4

But aside from keeping the cosmic system in order. He also sustains us. He makes sure were are never alone and is always available for each one of us.  He "gives life and breath to everything, and He satisifes every need." Acts 17:25.

He is an amazing God and He is readily available for anyone willing to turn their heart toward Him.
I hope you will stop by Charlotte and Ginger's . I hope you will join this wonderful encouraging post each week.

Absolutely love this post! Yes. We do need to pause, look up in the heavens and be in awe of our creator. He does have the whole world in His hands... that includes us, too. So we need to move forward in total confidence!

How anyone could believe that all of this - the universe, the world, us, all just happened by accident is way beyond my comprehension. I think it takes a lot more faith to believe that than it does to believe that God created everything. He is an amazing God. I've always liked that song too.
