What Keeps the Universe Together?

Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power.. (Heb. 1:3 KJV).

Word of God keeps universe together

Hebrews 1:3 above gives us an outstanding revelation of what sustains the universe. It says all things are maintained and held together by “the word of His power.” All things mean the entire creation, both heaven and earth, the visible and the invisible. Every single created thing is sustained and continues to exist by the power of God’s Word. It means they continue to exist because God said so.

There is a power that keeps our earth together, beyond the laws of physics.  The remarkable thing is that God created nature to operate as an independent unit with its own laws. However, those laws, as well as the natural objects and things they govern are held together by His power. God gives life, even to the atheist who rejects Him. The scriptures say in Him we move and have our being.

His Word created the universe and continues to sustain and maintain it in existence. The same is true of your life. God’s Word created you and continues to support you. This is the reason why creation responds to His words. In fact, Jesus spoke to a fig tree which does not have intelligence and it responded! The universe knows the Word of God and responds to it. How great and powerful is our God indeed!


When do you think God spoke the words that sustain creation? Is He speaking every single day to maintain it or the word He said in Genesis endures forever keeping the universe together?


The same word that created and sustains the universe has been given to us. These are the words handed to us in the scriptures. There is power in your heart and your mouth. Be conscious of what is in you!


Thank the Lord for the wonderful gift of His Word to you.
