All hang dependent on His powerful providence!

(William S. Plumer, "The Rock of Our Salvation" 1867)

" And he is before all things, and by him all things consist."


Col. 1:17

"…and upholding all things by the word of his power…" Hebrews 1:3
Jesus Christ upholds, preserves, and governs the worlds
which He has made!

Thus all creatures, from the smallest insect which is seen
by the microscope; up to the archangel which worships
before the eternal throne; all events, from the falling of
a hair of the head to the destruction of nations by famine,
pestilence, and war; all rule and authority, from that of a
petty official, to that of thrones and principalities in heaven;
the material universe, from the least particle which floats
in the sunbeam to the grandest system of worlds which roll
in immensity--all hang dependent on His powerful
And if one link in the chain of that dependence
were broken, they would all rush headlong to destruction!

Jesus always has governed this world; and He shall ever hold
the scepter over it, until His last foe is vanquished, and
His last hidden one made victorious
