Created for God

Updated: Aug 31

“For by Him all things were created: things in Heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by Him and for Him.” Colossians 1:16

By Him all things were created.

All things.

Things in Heaven and on Earth.

Thrones, powers, rulers, and authorities.

All created by Him and for Him.

Jesus Is God Almighty. He is not ‘a god” as some claim. He created everything that exists by the Word of His power. "Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made." John 1:3

How sad many He made don't recognize Him -- the incarnate Son of God. Puny man struts around thinking He is in charge when actually the God they ignore is the one who holds their lives in His hands. "And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist." Colossians 1:17 If God didn't allow it you wouldn't take your next breath.

He created the Universe to display His glory. "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night shows knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard." Psalm 19:1-3

"The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple." Psalm 19:7 How comforting to know the One who created all things is creating a new heart in those who turn to Him. That is such a small thing by comparison to His creative power. We are created by Him and for Him. Amazing thought. May the God of heaven and earth draw you close to His heart. Blessings, Beloved.
