It's all about HIM!

Colossians 1:16 says, "Through His power all things were made-things in Heaven and on earth, things seen and unseen, all powers, authorities, lords, and rulers. All things were made through Christ and FOR Christ." (NCV)

Corrie Ten Boom who was a captive by the Nazi's as a child once said, "There is no panic in heaven". We can get caught up with the things of this world and start look at the devil as the ultimate victor...but keep reading the Word, it will tell you who wins the final battle. God made it all and knows it all. There is nothing that surprises Him and nothing or no one on this earth was made without His knowledge.

Not only were all things made "through Christ" but even more important is that all things were made "for Christ". If you've ever read the book titled, "The Purpose Driven Life" by Rick Warren, you may recall the first sentence in the first chapter. I'll never forget hit me like a ton of says, "It's not about me!" Our surroundings tell us different. Our world tells us that "it's only about me" many conversations do you have with others where every sentence starts with "I"....

As a child of God, I need to get over myself and put the focus on Him and Him alone.

What a great reminder, that our world is "all about me"...and we do need to be diligent to not fall in that trap, but isn't it so easy. I loved Beth Moore's study on Daniel that dealt with so much of that. Thanks for sharing, Sue...its always great when you do
