Colossians 1:16-17 “”For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.”
All that is in the universe, whether visible or invisible, is held together by a fantastic “Super Glue”, the Lord God Almighty. Scientists study and think they have figured out the universe, but the one thing they can’t figure out is what keeps everything in balance, what is the sustaining force.
This mysterious adhesive power holds atoms together and allows tangible material to form and retain its shape. Even the oxygen molecules you’re breathing rely on it. That sustaining force is essential for the existence of everything.
What holds all things together? The Lord. All things are arranged, established, take their shape, and are held together in Him. This is of profound comfort to us. If the Lord holds even the microscopic elements of our universe together, He has and will do the same thing for His beloved children.
