Motivational Minute – Created By God

For everything was created by him,
in heaven and on earth,
the visible and the invisible,
whether thrones or dominions
or rulers or authorities—
all things have been created through him and for him.
He is before all things,
and by him all things hold together.
Colossians 1:16-17 (CSB)

Hi, I’m Laura Lacey Johnson.

Planet Earth is approximately 93-million miles away from the sun. If the sun were much closer, we’d all burn up. If the sun were much farther, we’d freeze.

Earth tilts exactly 23.44 degrees on its axis, giving us four beautiful seasons each year. If the planet tilted at any other angle, massive continents of ice would likely form.

Who keeps the Earth from falling into a big, black hole? Who keeps the planets from spinning out of control?

None other than our Creator – God.

Colossians 1 says everything in heaven and on earth is created by God, and in Him all things hold together.

If God can keep the universe in order, then you and I can trust Him to hold our lives together, too.
