Paul reminds us that “in Christ all things are held together.” Sometimes it seems as if everything that is nailed down is coming loose. We feel so powerless and helpless over those things that threaten our happiness and our well-being. It may be some debilitating illness, the death of a loved one, a bout with depression, the loss of emotional control, a marriage issue or a family disturbance. At those times it feels like everything is coming undone all around us.
In those times, when we feel things coming loose, we need to remember that there is someone wiser and stronger and more powerful and mightier than all the forces of earth and all the powers of Hell. Jesus Christ is the one who can hold all things together.
Decide today to make Jesus the ruler of your life. You can invite Him to be the Lord of your marriage, the Lord of your parenting, the Lord of your job, the Lord of your money, the Lord of your daily life, the Lord of your emotions, the Lord of your illnesses. Where Jesus is Lord there is going to be life, peace, hope, love, and a glorious future. Put yourself under the rule of Jesus Christ, because in Him all things are held together.
