Prayerfully read Colossians 1:17: “And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.”
Isn’t it amazing that the God of all creation cares for you and me with an everlasting love? He is here and has never left. The above Scripture of Colossians 1:17 in the Message version is quite striking:
“He was there before any of it came into existence and holds it all together right up to this moment.”
What a great truth to latch onto! The ever living and everlasting Lord God of the universe is holding all things together, upholding all things by the right hand of His righteousness. In the Scripture, please take note of that little three letter word: ALL. He is before ALL things, before the existence of time, He is, or as Jehovah told Moses, “I Am”! The eternal self-existent one. ALL things are made by Him and His Spirit is in all things and through Him all things were created. He is before time and will be after all time ceases to exist. He is God and there is none other. Even greater, let’s look at 1 John 5:20 TMV:
“And we know that the Son of God came so we could recognize and understand the truth of God—what a gift!—and we are living in the Truth itself, in God’s Son, Jesus Christ. This Jesus is both True God and Real Life.”
We are in Him and He is in us. He is the true God and eternal life! I stand in awe!
So, when life seems to overwhelm us and threats surround us, Lord, lead us to the Rock that is higher than I. Look around at God’s great Kingdom. He is more than able!
Read and meditate on Colossians 3:1-3. Write down what God shows you, praying back the Scripture to Him. In knowing Him more deeply, surely you will find rest for your soul!
- Pray for a fresh revelation of the greatness of the Lord.
- Pray that His life will flow into you and through you and hope and healing to all around you.
- Ask for an awakening to come to this nation.
