He Upholds All Things

I started reading the book of Hebrews. This little new song popped into my heart after I read verse 3. It says, “Who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.”

As I thought about ‘upholding all things by the word of His power’ I began to sing these words. Who makes the sun rise, who sets it down? The One Who upholds it all, the Sun of Righteousness. He died for us, redeeming us from a life bound in sin. He set us in the light of His countenance, flooding our hearts within with His love. He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Genesis 1 is such an amazing chapter. In the midst of darkness and total void, God spoke in verse 3, “…Let there be light; and there was light.” Just like that. He, our Creator God, separated the light from the darkness. 

2 Corinthians 4:6 says, “For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”

Proverbs 3:19-20 says, “The Lord by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding He established the heavens; by His knowledge the depths were broken up, and clouds drop down the dew.”

Psalm 119:89-91 says, “Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven. Your faithfulness endures to all generations; You established the earth, and it abides. They continue this day according to Your ordinances, for all are Your servants.”

Psalm 19:1-3 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard.”

I reiterated these verses because they undergird the totality of Who it is that upholds us. I love this verse. Psalm 63:8 Amplified says, “My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You; Your right hand upholds me.”

I encourage you to read Proverbs 8:22-31 when you have a chance. It was written about wisdom. Verse 30 says, “Then I was beside Him as a master craftsman; and I was daily His delight. Rejoicing always before Him.”
