Joshua 3:1-17; Hosea 11:12-14:9; Luke 20:20-21:4

In Him all things consist. Colossians 1:17, NKJV

When we think of Christ’s controlling and unifying power in the universe, consider that planet earth is moving in four different ways at once. It is rotating on its axis at 29 miles a second (at the equator); it is circling around the sun at 19 miles a second; it is moving with the solar system around the Milky Way at 170 miles a second—all as the universe expands outward. —W. Ross Rainey

O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made,
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed;
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art! —Carl Boberg
