When everything falls apart

Colossians 1:16-17 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. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

These times we’re living in are difficult, to say the least.  With economic meltdown and employment instability, it’s no wonder why so many people are filled with anxiety.  Add to that moral decay that brings about all kinds of evil deeds and the times can be downright frightening.

But as Christians, those who belong to God, we have hope beyond the hope that this world has to offer.  The very same God who created everything holds it all together.  This very Jesus by whom and for whom all things were created sustains all of it.  No matter what your situation, He is not ignorant of what’s going on.  No matter how bad it seems, all things are in His hands.

Give over your troubles to Him and He will take care of you (Matthew 11:28-30). There’s no problem in your life too big for our Lord.  There’s nothing He hasn’t faced and nothing He can’t manage on your behalf.  Go to Him.
