    But when they continued asking him, he looked up and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him throw the first stone at her." Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground with his finger. They, when they heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning fro...

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. He isn't served by men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he himself gives to all life and breath and all things. Acts 17:24'25 WEB.

    He's got the whole world in His hands. Those words were part of a great song that I learned as a child, 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 the focus of His mighty hands.

    Careers, problems, relationships, and bills grew bigger and bigger. At the same time, the hands of God began to look smaller and smaller. Before long, I couldn't picture them at all. The bad part of living like this is that everything we can see, and all we are working for, is temporary and will pass away. In comparison, the unseen things are eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18).

    God's hand had not changed, but my view of them 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. The day will come when it will return to Him (Ecclesiastes 12:7).

    Do not lose sight of God's loving hands. Remember the things that He has done in your life. Encourage yourself in the Lord like David did (1Samuel 30:6). Our Heavenly Father is still the Creator of the universe. While the problem you face may look big in your hands, it wouldn't even be noticeable in His. So give it to Him in prayer and trust Him to help you take care of it.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You, and I know that You 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. Please guide me to where I need to be. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

Amen! God does have the whole world in His hands. God is the creater of the world and everything in it, there is nothing that He did not create. He loves us so much, much more than we can ever realize. We are all in Gods hands and if you dont feel Him holding you cry out to Him and listen for his still small voice saying, " Child you are mine and I love you and I always will.
