The hands that hold the world

11 Jul

I’m in awe.

Last night I was reading Hebrews 12 and the last two verses just grabbed my attention, so I had to share them:

Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire. Hebrews 12:28-29

A kingdom that cannot be shaken. Let us offer to God acceptable worship. Our God is a consuming fire.

These verses give us a tiny little window-sized view into just how big our God is, even though we can’t fathom just how great he really is. But it simply amazes me that the same God that created the entire universe also created me and you, and he cares for us deeply. It reminds me of Phil Wickham’s song “Safe,” which I absolutely love:

“You will be safe in his arms, you will be safe in his arms

Cause the hands that hold the world are holding your heart

This is the promise he made, he will be with you always

When everything is falling apart, you will be safe in his arms.”

Isn’t that incredible?

    Good word thank you I have been looking into why we focuse this days so much on how God loves us and yet so little on how we should love Him He has created us in His image as He so much wants us to fellowship with Him so sanctification by refining fire as declared by John the Baptis cleansing to perfection of attitude will bring us closer to God

    Amen! My mother and I were reading Psalm 11 last night and it referenced the foundations being being destroyed v.3 (foundations of the earth we discovered) and the next verse v.4 connects with today’s scripture reference from what I saw as a rhetorical question david postulated in v.3 of Psalm 11 (When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?)
