Realizing the presence, promise, and power of the Kingdom of God.

In Him

Jesus has all power. All.

Spiritual Vision

Visible, invisible, corporeal, incorporeal, rational, irrational - heaven and earth, the abyss, and whatever is therein - in him all live and are life and subsist eternally. Even what seems to us to be without vital movement lives in the Word.

  - Eriugena, Homily on John 1.1-14 (Irish, 9th century)

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities - all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

  - Colossians 1.15-17

How much power does Jesus have?

All of it.

He holds all things together in and by Himself. All things - every molecule, atom, and sub-atomic particle; all living creatures; every existing thing, whether it has "vital movement" or not. Jesus has power to keep them all and to keep them doing whatever He has ordained they should do.

He keeps your body temperature what it needs to be, moves the oxygen around and fires the synapses of your brain, and turns your food into you and you into Him by His powerful Word and Spirit.

Nothing can resist His plans and purposes. Nothing can thwart His power for righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. Nothing can prevent Him from building His Church, no, not even the highest counsels of the deepest abyss of hell.

Jesus has all power. All.

And we exist in Him.

So whatever might cause you to fret or fear today, or whatever threatens to rob you of your joy or derail your fondest plans, none of it happens outside the scope of His power or apart from His authority.

And He does all things well and works all things together for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.

And we exist in Him.

In Him. In Jesus. In the King of Kings, the Upholder of All Things.

Rest, brethren, and, come what may, rejoice, give thanks, and boast about Jesus.
