Gravity or Nothing

What’s holding you up today? Is it GRAVITY or NOTHING? One of the verses of scripture I could never understand while in Seminary was Job 26:7

“He stretched out the north over the empty space, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.”

Then I read a scientific report about the relationship of the earth and the power of gravity. I found out that the earth actually stands upon nothing! It is suspended in space by the sheer force of gravity alone– wow! Still, no one knows WHAT the force of gravity is…… And HOW it originated…… And WHY it is there. So, the fact remains simple: It is God who is holding up the earth.

Hebrews 1:3“…. Upholding all things by the Word of His power….”

Spiritually speaking, what lesson can we learn from this? If the earth hangs upon NOTHING, and God is holding it up – God’s people on the earth, should hang on NOTHING – BUT on their God!

  • Our faith should hang on nothing BUT our God.
  • On the Word of our God,
  • And the power of our God.

So, I propose that there is a spiritual gravitational pull by which we are upheld.

Rom. 5:2 “… Grace in which we stand… ”

Therefore, that gravitational pull/ G FORCE = the GRACE of God, which is upholding you and me today. There are folk whose trust and confidence are in their faith. This puts a greater weight or responsibility on them. May we place our trust in our Lord alone – And allow ourselves to be upheld by that strong unshatterable force of the grace of God.
