15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

All of creation owes its existence to Jesus. Just stop and think about that for a second. Every rock, every tree, all the stars, every animal, and all of us people have been created by Jesus. All the variety of plants and animals were Jesus’ doing. All the intricate details of this world, from atoms, and molecules, to birds laying eggs and mammals giving birth to live young, were all imagined and realized by the firstborn over all creation, our Lord Jesus.

And all of this was created for Him as well. Have any of you ever created something? Maybe a picture, a poem, a song, a patio, a model airplane. How does it feel when you are done? It feels good to enjoy what you have spent time and energy making. “So on the seventh day God rested from all his work.” Gen. 2:2. I can just imagine Jesus smiling over His creation and saying, “It is very good.” Gen. 1:31. Do you know that he smiles over you? Take a moment and let that sink in. You make the God of the universe smile!

If all that wasn’t enough, Jesus holds this whole world together as well. Like the song says, “He’s got the whole world in His hands …” Whatever I am trusting in apart from Jesus is only as strong as He makes it. Since at any second He could let go of it. He holds it all together. Whatever mountain I might be facing is only as big as He allows it to be. Since He can get rid of it at any time. He holds it all together. And why do I worry or fret about anything? It’s all in God’s hands anyways!

    So true!
    When I try and place things in my hands which are already in God’s hands I take on overwhelment and concern. Then I lose my peace and get into worry, fear, and anxiety. When all in all it is already being handled by my Lord and I just need to rest in Him and take refuge. Thank you Lord for helping me to hand over every care in my life. Help me not to be disheartened by situations in my life, but to trust and believe that you are holding it all together. Thank you Father , in Jesus name Amen!
