Hands holding the globe in darkness

He has the whole world, in His hands.

When I was in Sunday School we learned a song that had this line, “He has the whole world in His hands. He has the world in His hands.”

It’s simple and iconic but its message is eternally true! 

God has the whole world in His hands because He made the whole world with His hands.

He’s the creator of the heavens and the earth. This is how God introduces himself with the first verse in the Bible. 

”In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.“

Genesis‬ ‭1‬:‭1‬

Our origin is God. The origin of creation is God. Everything we see and don’t see, is from Him. He’s the maker and creator of every living thing. 

With His genius design, He wove everything together causing it to work the functioning of all that we need. This biblical fact sets the foundation of how we see ourselves, others, the earth, our purpose, and everything else in our lives.

It all comes from Him and belongs to Him!

Creation is so profound that it reveals who God is. 

”For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.“

Romans‬ ‭1‬:‭20‬

Notice we can see God’s invisible qualities and divine nature through creation. We can see the invisible God through His creation. This has proved true throughout history as ancient civilizations knew there was a God by seeing creation. They reached for Him, although many times not knowing who He was. But creation itself was enough for them to know, someone else did this and He’s bigger than me. 

Today it’s the same. Creation declares the glory of God and shows His handiwork.  Jesus is revealed through creation.

”15. Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, 16. for through him, God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see— such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. 17. He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together.“

Colossians‬ ‭1‬:‭15‬-‭17‬

We see that God created everything through Jesus and He holds it all together.

Jesus is the answer for the world today because He’s holding it all together. Furthermore, He became like us in human form, to take our place, so we could be with Him forever. 

“Whoever calls on the Name of the Lord, shall be saved.”

Romans 10:13

We worship Jesus as our King, Redeemer, Deliverer, Savior, Creator, Healer, and so much more. 

Creation reflects this and declares this to be true. The trees, mountains, oceans, animals, grass, flowers, and more declare who He is.

Oh yes, Creation knows who God is. 

”19. For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are.“ 20. Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope, 21. the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay.“

Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭19-21‬

Creation is waiting for His coming just like we are. It knows God and it will be redeemed to its original purpose and form.

Let this stir your faith that our God is a genius. We’re here because of His design and His plan. He’s the creator, we are the creation. He is the architect and we are His building. He is the artist and we are His work of art.

This is liberating and empowering because we’re NOT God, He is. We’re NOT our savior, He is. We’re NOT our answer, He is.

Jesus is what we need and who we need.

He knows you, He sees you and He’s working His plans for you right now. You’re a part of His design and purpose. Let creation remind you of that and be encouraged. Your God is with you and He’s moving greatly for you now!!

If He’s holding the whole world in His hands, He can hold your world in His hands too!

Have a great day and the best is yet to come!!
