"In Him all things are held together" (Colossians 1:17).

God is so whole and complete! I cannot grasp a fraction of the whole of who He is and of all that is in Him. He is the beginning and the end. I don't know about you, but I need the beginning and the end divided down into day at a time, from start to end.

And in Him "all things were created, in heaven and on earth, things seen and unseen, whether thrones, dominions, rulers, or
 authorities; all things were created and exist through Him and in Him and for Him alll things are held together" (Col. 1:16-17). I really need this divided thing at a time!

This thing, this day, held together in Him.

Also in Him is Wisdom for all things and eternity. Wisdom...for everthing, everyday? Yes, I need this divided down into something I can begin to figure! Wisdom can seem so intangible...but it's not. Christ is the Wisdom of God (1 Cor. 1:24). Christ for all days; Christ for all things. And, what about this...wisdom is God-given skill for "every area and relation" (Prov. 2:9). Skill! God-given skill! Christ-skill for every area, all days, every relation, all things...held together in Him.

Here is both assurance and comfort when there is an area too overwhelming to know what to do about it. A relationship that seems to be falling apart. Something being pulled apart. A day unravelling. There's always something, someone, somewhere, isn't there? But for all this, there is the wholeness of our very big God and His given skill.
In Him all things are held together!
