The World Hangs on Nothing -- He Holds Onto You

"He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing." (Job 26: 7)

God is everything, and this "everything" is expressed in His Son Jesus:

"Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; 20And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven." (Colossians 1: 15-20)

God is everything, and the world we walk in hangs on nothing, or in nothingness.

If this whole world depends on nothing, then it certainly does not depend on us, and we certainly should not feel as if everything does depend on us.

Instead, God invites us to depend on Him, and let everything depend on Him:

"And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. 29My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand." (John 10: 28-29)


""Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 7Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." (1 Peter 5: 6-7)

Jesus Christ holds onto us, and the whole universe is held together by Him.

What makes you think, then, that you have to hold onto everything?

Thus Jesus offers to us:

"Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?" ({Matthew 6: 25)


"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." (Mathew 6: 33)
God hangs the world on nothing, yet He gave everything for you. Let Him be the Everything who holds onto you.
