Last Sunday I watched the children playing with the giant world globe that George Verwer had brought. It reminded me of that children’s song, ‘He’s got the Whole World in His Hands.’

We live in a world where stresses and strains can get the better of us and life can get us down. But when I look at a child, I see very few stresses. They seem to find so much joy in the small things. We can learn a lot from little children.

As we grow older and ‘life’ happens, we very easily forget about the small things that bring joy. We can often forget that God indeed has the whole world in His hands.

Just as my little Christopher will trust me with anything, I am reminded that I need to have that same faith when it comes to trusting God. Isaiah speaks about the amazing power of God; that God is God and there is nothing like Him.

‘Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.’
Isaiah 40 v 28-31

Are you willing to trust Him and put your life in His hands?
