Everything Rests Upon God
And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. (Colossians 1:17 KJV)
The Bible tells us that everything rests upon God. He is the creator and sustainer of this world and the heavenly realm. If it were not for God, this universe and everything in it would not exist for He is the backbone of all.
Just like mankind could not stand or function without his skeleton, nothing could be or exist without God. There are over two hundred bones that make up mankind’s form or structure which allow him to move and perform various activities of daily living. Without his backbone, mankind’s existence would be without function. Man would not be able to crawl, walk, or move about in any fashion. He would exist as a blob having no spinal structure in this world.
Without God, this universe and everything in it would not bear life or have existence of any form. The universe would be void of all things having no point, form, or authority in which to create and sustain anything (for further read John chapter one).
