At all times we are to be at peace and know that in the sight of the Lord,
all is well. The Lord who is Sovereign and Supreme has told us to be of
good cheer and to not worry about anything. He who weighs the mountains in
scales and the hills in a balance has everything under control and as His
children, we are to have confidence in His ability and know that God's Word
is true and will not return unto us void. (Matthew 6:27-33) (Isaiah 40:12-14)
Many times we hear the words 'be of good cheer', but we do not take them
to heart and rest in this command. The Lord who declares the end from the
beginning sees our lives and knows what our future holds. The Lord who
called us from darkness into His light will never leave us nor forsaken us,
but will place our feet on solid ground to finish our course solidly and in
His perfect will. (John 16:33) (Isaiah 46:10) (1 Peter 2:9-10)
I hope you are inspired by today's message to take comfort in the Lord and
know that He holds you securely in the palms of His Hands and keeps you as
the apple of the eye.
HE HOLDS IT ALL TOGETHER
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth"...but when was
the beginning? Since only the Creator is eternal, it is reasonable to view
'the beginning' as the start of time, a dimension like a window in the
middle of eternity. If the stars were not created until God spoke them into
existence on the fourth day, what is the meaning of 'heavens'? The original
Hebrew word actually means 'stretched out space'! In other words, God
created even the empty space in which to place the earth!
"For by Jesus all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth,
visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or
authorities--all things have been created through Jesus and for Him. He is
before all things, and in Jesus all things hold together." Colossians 1:16-17
Atoms, the building blocks of all physical things, are composed of 3
elements: space, matter and energy. Although the raw materials for planet
Earth were created, it was only formless matter; void of something
necessary for sustaining life. That missing 'something' needed to bring
matter together in forming Earth was the third aspect: energy.
God works everything in logical order and His sequence of creative acts is
no exception. Visible light is not only the narrow band of color we see
with our eyes. Light is just one of at least 75 octaves included in the
entire electromagnetic spectrum. As God spoke "Let there be light!", matter
was energized and the basic elements took shape, initiating the physical
laws that rule all forms of matter. Particles were now in motion and
operating in time! And all of it was - and is - held together by our Lord;
"For in Him we live and move and exist." (Acts 17:28)
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was
God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through
Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.
In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men." John 1:1-4
A most comforting truth is that the sovereignty of God extends to the daily
details of our lives. He's concerned about us and His control extends over
all our days, working all things to our good!

Rest in the Lord and know that All Is Well. Do not allow worry or fear to
enter into your heart, but stand firm and know that if God said it, then it
will surely come to pass. (Ephesians 6:10-14) (Numbers 23:19-20)
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Proverbs 1:7-9 "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but
fools despise wisdom and instruction. My son, hear the instruction of thy
father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: For they shall be an
ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck."
Isaiah 45:18-19 "For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God
Himself that formed the earth and made it; He hath established it, He
created it not in vain, He formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and
there is none else. I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the
earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD
speak righteousness, I declare things that are right."
Psalm 139:1-6 "O LORD, Thou hast searched me, and known me. Thou knowest
my downsitting and mine uprising, Thou understandest my thought afar off.
Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my
ways. For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, Thou knowest
it altogether. Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid Thine hand
upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot
attain unto it."
2 Corinthians 13:11-14 "Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good
comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall
be with you. Greet one another with an holy kiss. All the saints salute
you. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the
communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen."
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
