I came across a verse in Hebrews that brought me back to a chemistry class I took in college. Hebrews 1:3, “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His being, SUSTAINING ALL THINGS BY HIS POWERFUL WORD.”
In my college chemistry class, we learned that opposite charges attract and like charges repel. The professor pointed out that in the nucleus of every atom there are protons which are positively charged particles. He said that scientists have no explanation for what holds the nucleus of every single atom in the universe together. The like charges should repel each other, causing the nucleus to explode. An atom is the smallest building block of everything in creation. The nucleus is the center of every and man can not explain how every nucleus of every atom in creation is being held together. It defies the laws of physics!
The answer is in the scriptures. God spoke and it came into being. All things are sustained by His powerful Word. It is the very Word of God that is, quite literally, sustaining the entire creation. It is by His powerful Word that the entire creation is being held together.
Do you feel like the world is falling apart? Do you feel like you are falling apart? Remind yourself of the power of the Word of God. If He has and continues to sustain all things by the power of His Word, that certainly includes you and your world. I think that it is very interesting that God did not create a self sustaining universe; one that could exist without Him. Neither did He create man to be able to exist without His sustaining power, right down to every atom of our being.
So, let’s examine what the glue that holds the universe together is. It does not take a scientific inquiry, for science has no explanation. Search His Word – written and spoken – in the still small voice of God. In them you will find the power that sustains your life! In them you will find eternal, abundant and victorious life!
