“He hangs the earth on nothing” Job 26:7b
Little do we behold but glimpses of the Glory of God. He is the great Creator – Father of Lights, Whose “ways are higher than our ways”, Whose “thoughts are higher than our thoughts” Isaiah 55:9. He draws us to His Son Jesus through His powerful Holy Spirit, “that we may know Him” John 17:2. Little do we meditate on the breadth of His reach beyond that which concerns us – but such is the way of man.
Yet, He is the One, “Who covers Himself with Light as a garment, stretching out the heavens like a curtain…Who makes the clouds His chariot, Who walks on the wings of the wind” Psalm 104:2-3. He alone, “measures the waters in the hollow of His hand.” Isaiah 40:12. And still, He “is mindful of man” Psalm 8:4. His is the most “excellent Name in all the earth” Psalm 8:1.
“He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” Matt. 5:45. It is He who holds “the treasury of snow, and the treasury of hail” Job 38:2. “He draws the circular horizon on the face of the waters, at the boundary of light and darkness” Job 26:10. and “He sits on His Throne above the circle of the earth.” Isaiah 40:22.
“Have you considered the birds of the air? He feeds and takes care of them,” and still He says, “you are of more value, so do not worry about that which you need, for your heavenly Father knows your needs” but “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and these things will be added to you” Matt. 6:26-33. Do we trust Him?
Long before the science of men could declare knowledge of the earth and universe in which we live, our Creator told us by His servant, Job: “He hangs the earth on nothing” Job 26:7b, and “upholds all things by the word of His power!” Hebrews 1:3. Let us then worship in awe of His mighty power, let us “declare with the heavens His glory” Psalm 19:1, let us “sing unto Him a new song for the marvelous things He has done. For the Lord has made known His salvation!” Psalm 98:1-2. AMEN!
