“IN HIM ALL THINGS HOLD TOGETHER”
“For by Him 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 Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together”. Colossians 1:16-17
You cannot see it, you cannot measure it, you cannot prove it. Yet, most scientists say they think there is a mysterious matter in the universe, a form of matter thought to account for approximately 85% of the matter in the universe and about a quarter of its total energy density. Its presence is implied in a variety of astrophysical observations, including gravitational effects that cannot be explained by accepted theories of gravity unless more matter is present than can be seen. For this reason, most experts think that dark matter is abundant in the universe and that it has had a strong influence on its structure and evolution. Dark matter is called dark because it does not appear to interact with observable electromagnetic radiation, such as light, and so it is undetectable by existing astronomical instruments. (Wikipedia).
It is known as “Dark matter” and it is the most mysterious, non-interacting substance in the Universe. Its gravitational effects are necessary to explain the rotation of galaxies, the motions of clusters, and the largest scale-structure in the entire Universe.
“Dark matter” is composed of particles that do not absorb, reflect, or emit light, so they cannot be detected by observing electromagnetic radiation. Dark matter is material that cannot be seen directly. We know that dark matter exists because of the effect it has on objects that we can observe directly.
“Dark matter”, in the minds of many scientists, is responsible for holding all things, both in the earth and in the heavens, together.
- They cannot see it,
- they cannot measure it,
- they cannot prove it, but
- they believe dark matter exists because of the effect it has on objects that we can observe directly.
- You cannot see Him because He is invisible.
- You cannot measure Him or His Domain.
- You cannot prove He Is.
- We believe God because of the effect He has on all things, both in the heavens and on the earth.
Our moment-by-moment existence depends on His gracious sustenance of every electron, every atom, every molecule and every spiritual entity as well.
We are safe when we place our trust in Him and put our whole lives into His hands! Can we not then stand in awe of our great God and Creator, along with the Psalmist who wrote:
“O come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also. The sea is his, for he made it; for his hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker! For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. O that today you would hearken to his voice!” Psalm 95:1-7
Cast out all fear. We are held in the Palm of His Hand
Your Brother & Friend
