The Upholder

who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, - Hebrews 11.3 

Do you ever wonder how it is all going to work out? Sometimes it just doesn't seem like there is an answer. Sometimes it all seems impossible. Sometimes it just seems like there really is no way. 

And if we had to do these things in our own power there very well might be no way. Our own power seems to always let us down. 

But we don't have to worry about doing things in our own power. 

We have the the All-powerful Creator of the universe as our Upholder. As Upholder Jesus of all things Jesus shoulders the burden of the world. He carries every weight and every woe and every care simply by the word of His power. But, we must remember, this is the same word that said 'let there be light.' It is the same word that said to the storm 'peace, be still.' 

It is the all-powerful word that holds it all together and nothing is impossible for Him. He is well able to uphold us even in the most dangerous storm. 

So when I think the foundation is crumbling may I always remember that a Force stronger than the force of destruction is holding it all together and we can depend on the Upholder to keep upholding.
