From the macroscopic to the microscopic… God’s in control!

This morning I’m grateful for – and rejoicing in, the order in the universe. Can you imagine the horror if suddenly everything – and I mean everything – just came apart – unraveling suddenly like a tightly wound ball of rubber bands? Imagine it… from the macroscopic, universal aspect of things, all the way down to the microscopic, smallest of object (sub-atomic particles) just suddenly flying apart! … The damage, destruction, and panic would be beyond imagination!
I mean, what holds it all together anyway? Where does the order in the universe ultimately come from?
Well, as one who believes in and reverences (or “fears”) God, I believe it comes from Almighty God! In fact I read about it this morning during my time of “coffee with the Lord”…
“Forever, O Lord, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens! Your faithfulness endures to all generations! You have established the earth, and it stands fast. By your appointment they stand this day, FOR ALL THINGS ARE YOUR SERVANTS!” (From Psalm 119:89–91 ESV)
And to buttress that perspective Colossians 1:16-18-19 declares, “For by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities – all things were created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together… that in everything He might be preeminent!”
Yes, I believe and embrace that worldview with all my heart! Divine order!! … Ultimately He’s in charge! And I’m grateful!
