God Holds All Things Together

When my Dad was in the hospital a few weeks ago, a man he'd never met before came and visited him and showed him an awesome online video. After Dad saw it, he knew he had to use the message in part of his next sermon! :) When my parents got home they showed it to us girls. It was astounding. I immediately wanted to tell everyone I knew about it and shout it to the world! I was so thrilled! Sadly, I couldn't because then people would already know it before he preached about it... oh well! I had to wait, and it sure was hard!

SO... now that he preached last Sunday evening at our church, and this Sunday morning at our old church... I have to post about laminin! :) If you haven't already seen this or heard of it then you'll really want to watch! (DON'T FORGET TO SILENCE MY PLAYLIST FIRST!)

12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens? Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket, or weighed the mountains on the scales and the hills in a balance?
13 Who has understood the mind [
d] of the LORD, or instructed him as his counselor?
14 Whom did the LORD consult to enlighten him, and who taught him the right way? Who was it that taught him knowledge or showed him the path of understanding?
15 Surely the nations are like a drop in a bucket; they are regarded as dust on the scales; he weighs the islands as though they were fine dust.
16 Lebanon is not sufficient for altar fires, nor its animals enough for burnt offerings.
17 Before him all the nations are as nothing; they are regarded by him as worthless and less than nothing.
18 To whom, then, will you compare God? What image will you compare him to?
19 As for an idol, a craftsman casts it, and a goldsmith overlays it with gold and fashions silver chains for it.
20 A man too poor to present such an offering selects wood that will not rot. He looks for a skilled craftsman to set up an idol that will not topple.
21 Do you not know? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood since the earth was founded?
22 He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in.
23 He brings princes to naught and reduces the rulers of this world to nothing.
24 No sooner are they planted, no sooner are they sown, no sooner do they take root in the ground, than he blows on them and they wither, and a whirlwind sweeps them away like chaff.
25 "To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?" says the Holy One.
26 Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.

Is that not completely amazing?! I have to tell you it gives me goose bumps just thinking about how big of a God we serve! And yet He is still so intimately aquainted with each and every one of us!

I hope this video in some way helped to inspire and encourage you, as it did me. Our God truly is an awesome God! Praise His holy name!
