The Whole World in His Hands!

Kurios Theos you understand what this means? Yes, the literal translation from the Greek would be Lord God Almighty or Lord God Omnipotent, but what does that really mean? It means that our God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, is Absolute Ruler of the universe; There is none higher than He; He needs no one's permission or approval to do anything He wishes!
   Realize that all the forces of nature- known and unknown- are His to command. A few examples:
He sendeth forth His commandment upon earth: His word runneth very swiftly. He giveth snow like wool; He scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes. He casteh forth His ice like morsels: who can stand before His cold?  Psalm 147:15-18
And it shall come to pass in that day, That the Lord shall hiss for the fly that is in the uttermost part of the rivers of Egypt, and for the bee that is in the land of Assyria, and they shall come... Isaiah 7:18
...and though they be hid from My sight in the bottom of the sea, thence will I command the serpent, and he shall bite them. Amos 9:3 
And the Lord shall utter His voice before His army: for His camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth His word... Joel 2:11
In His hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is His also. Psalm 95:4
He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; He touches the hills and they smoke. Psalm 104:32
The silver is Mine, the gold is Mine, saith the Lord of hosts. Haggai 2:8
   And as if this weren't enough, remember God can also turn His enemies against one another! Am I worried that the rulers of this world have all the money, write the laws, and direct the military? To God they're just a drop in the bucket (Isaiah 40:15) So they're all going to team up with the Devil to fight God? Is He scared? Should you be? "He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision." writes the Psalmist (Psalm 2:4-5).
   Listen, the devil may think he has Christians figured out, but he doesn't have Christ figured out! God has stuff we haven't even imagined yet (1 Corinthians 2:9), and we don't even understand all the prophecies- they're sealed until the end! Bottom line, our God ultimately holds all the power. Remember who you are and Whose you are. 
Grace and peace always, and in all ways.
