Colossians 1:17 (ESV): "17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together."
Do you ever feel like life is spiraling out of control and no one can stop it? Understand this, life is on a specific course ordained by our Creator and thus it can only go where He allows it to go. Life is never out of control because it's in the capable hands of Jesus and He holds all things together. So fret not for He's got you!
Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation in terms of supremacy and rank. For by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through Him and for Him. As the creator, He is before all things and in Him all things hold together.
What are you worried about Christian? Don't you trust that Jesus is holding all things together? It doesn't matter what you experience in this life He's got you. From cancer to societal collapse, you can trust your creator. He holds all things together always. Just put your faith in Him and let go of your expectations of how things could be or should be and trust Him in how they are! Jesus has it all under control and He is asking us to trust Him. Will you do it? I pray so.
Father, we thank You that You've got our life in the capable hands of Your Son. Remind us often that we are in His grip! When life feels like it's out of control may we trust in You alone to bring us perfect peace because You are in control. In Jesus' name, amen!
