The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. (Hebrews 1:3)
How encouraging to know that the song many of us sang as children is absolutely true: our God has the whole world in His hands. Not even a bird falls to the ground apart from His will (Matthew 10:29). There is no such thing as “luck” or “fate” or “chance” . . . only a sovereign Lord who sustains all things by the power of His Word. So what do you have to fear today? Why would you be harboring any doubts?
Is there some part of your life where are you dealing with a sense of uncertainty and feeling a bit out of sorts? Just know that Omnipotence is not only holding the whole world in His hands, but the entire universe as well and everything in it . . . and that means you too! Omniscience is guiding, governing, and directing your every step. Omnipresence goes before you, behind you, beside you—and, most importantly, inside of you.
Behold this truth today, Christian, and be blessed: the Lord Jesus Christ has the whole of the divine Godhead yoked, not only to the chariot of your salvation, but to your sanctification as well. God is changing you and conforming you into the image of His beloved Son, and He will not stop until He has finished His work and ushers you into His glorious and eternal kingdom on the other side of the Jordan. Until then, know this . . .
- His Word is your instruction.
- His wisdom is your direction.
- His power is your protection.
- His presence is your perfection!
You have been given everything you need to do everything God has called you to do. The One who owns the cattle on a thousand hills has made every resource you need available just for the asking. Divinity is in complete control of your destiny. But God is calling you to do your part by putting all of your gifts, talents, and abilities into service to expand the cause of His kingdom for His glory and the good of all others.
Let me close today’s message with a question: What could you do today to convince the watching world that you actually believe your God does indeed hold the whole world in His hands? Why not do it . . . Why not do it right now?
Remember, you cannot fail. You could fall over and over again, but falling isn’t failing unless you fail to get up.
This is the Gospel. This is grace for your race. NEVER FORGET THAT . . . AMEN!
