Ever have those moments (or days, or even weeks…) when you completely lose it? When you feel so overwhelmed (by this) that nothing makes sense, time seems to speed up and slow down all at the same time, and you function in a sort of daze?
In those moments (or days/weeks), have you ever [even subconsciously or unintentionally] attempted to take the control back from God as if to say, “I can handle this one on my own”?
Only to then realize the complete and utter futility of such an attempt?
From that place, consider this perspective:
“For by him [Christ] all things were created:
things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible,
whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities;
all things were created by him and for him.
He is before all things,
and in him all things hold together.”
Colossians 1:16-17 (New International Version – emphasis added)
If you’ve never taken me up on it before, go check out the surrounding text in verses 15-23.
According to this passage,
He’s got this.
Whatever your this is, He’s got it.
In the words of a familiar children’s song, “He’s got the whole world in His hands.”
And He’s got this.
