Colossians 1: 16-17
"For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together."
"When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm. Selah"
You know I have been thinking on these verses today. I read Colossians first this morning, then I read Psalm 75 right after, and the "HOLD" word just jumped off the page to me. It seems that I try my best to control not one thing, but a plethora of things everyday. This verse just reemphasizes to me that my God is in control, he is the one that "holds" all things together. I can do "nothing" without God. It is not because of me that anything happens. This reminds me of an ON/OFF switch. God is THE On/Off switch of the whole universe. It is not by my doing that anything happens but because of my Almighty, all knowing God. I can do my part, but all results are from His hand. I do not control this universe, repeat, I do not control this universe!
So, what do I take from this? I need to stop worrying and stressing over things that may or may not come to pass. I am not the ON/OFF switch!
