"God is supremely esteemed. His center holds. Zion brims over with all that is just and right. God keeps your days stable and secure--salvation, wisdom, and knowledge in surplus,
and best of all, Zion's treasure, Fear-of-God."
~Isaiah 33:5-6, The Message
The phrase that catches my attention this morning is "His center holds." It reminds me of gravity at the Earth's core, holding us and everything down, keeping us from flying off into outer space.
In engineering, the center of gravity is the key factor for balance and proper function of any machine. Imagine what a great engineer God is.
"For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible . . . all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together." ~Colossians 1:16, 17 NASB
Not only is God the great engineer, He, himself, is the gravity at the core of all things, holding them together.
