“And He is before all things, and by him all things consist.” - Colossians 1:17 (KJV)
This verse tells us that God existed before all things, and that all things are “composed or made up of” him. Other translations say that “he holds all things together.” What a picture of glory and power it paints for our God!
Even when the world seems to be spiraling out of control or out of your grasp, God still holds all of this in the palm of his perfect, endless hand. He existed before all other things, and everything is composed and made up of him. We can never outrun God’s love and glory!
