The Whole World In His Hands

  • The God who made the world and all things in it, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, doesn't dwell in temples made with hands, neither is he served by men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he himself gives to all life and breath, and all things. Acts 17:24 WEB

    When I was growing up, we used to sing a song called: 'He's got the whole world in His hands', and I believed it. I could just picture God's huge hands holding the world. Then I grew up, got a job, and as life started happening to me, I slowly lost focus of this.

    Careers, problems, and bills grew bigger and bigger. The hands of God looked smaller, and smaller. Before long, I could not even see them. The bad part of this lifestyle is that everything that we can see, and are working for, is temporary. While the unseen things are eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18).

    God's hand had not changed, but my outlook had. He still has the whole world in His hands. The breath of air that you just breathed in came from Him. He provided it for you and though you cannot even see it, you would die without it.

    Do not lose sight of God's hand. He still has the whole world in His hands. The problem you are facing may look big in your hand, but it would not even be noticeable in his. Give it to Him.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You and I know that You do have the whole world in Your hands. You created it, and us Lord. I know that You know best and I choose to trust You this day. Guide me to where I need to be, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

As a child, I used to sing that song in sunday school too. So true,remembering that Father God has the whole of creation in His hands helps keep life and circumstances in the right perspective.

Agreed, Richard, it's only the voice of the enemy who tries to make our problems bigger than they ought to be!

Amen! Every day that we wake up is a gift from our Abba Father, we can choose to accept this gift of life and to praise Him for another day to to serve Him, or we can choose to ignore the fact that we only live and breathe because of His mercy. He gives life and He takes it away. How we use this gift, is entirely our decision. Are we storing up treasures in Heaven, or are we storing them here? Are we being a light in this dark world and serving others,or are we consumed with self? Time is short and our lives will end for we are but dust, so we must consider every day a chance to do better at serving Him and being His hands and feet.

I loved the song to...He's got the Whole world in His hands.  It sounded loving.  Being a child sometimes was great..waking up in the adult world it wasn't what I thought.  Not what I thought at alllll!  Glad I know Him personally now!
