He Has Control of Everything

The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His being, sustaining all things by His powerful word. After He had provided purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

Hebrews 1:3 (NIV)

When engineers talk about construction, even if they have perfect architecture and the best materials, the first thing they think of is the foundation that holds the house together. Without this foundation, no matter how beautiful and solid this house is, at the first gust of wind, it will fall without any resistance.

In this verse we see in Jesus the one who holds all things. Through Him, God created heaven and earth. Nothing in the universe escapes His control, from the immensity of the solar system to the growth of the grain of corn that we sow, it is He who keeps everything in balance by the power of His word. Beyond the physical things that He sustains, He is also the one who, seated at the right hand of God, intercedes for the forgiveness of our sins.

When you doubt Christ's intervention on your behalf and His power because of difficult situations in your life, take the time to read this beautiful passage from the epistle to the Hebrews. This will comfort you and strengthen your faith in Jesus Christ through whom all things subsist. If Jesus plays the primary role in the creation and sustenance of the universe, He is even more in control of everything that happens in your life. Remember that even if you don't understand how, all things always work together for good to those who love God.

May the grace and peace of God be with you all.
