"He's got the whole world in his hands." That is more than a timeless spiritual. While I hear a children's choir singing it, the song is actually a metaphysical manifesto. It's critical that our faith rests upon an all encompassing God.
My Scripture Union Bible study recently cited the 1963 Christian classic The Christian Mind by Harry Blamires. "The first mark of the Christian mind is that it cultivates the eternal perspective."
That prompted a few deep thoughts about our boundless God.
Untether my earthbound faith,
hemmed in by science,
and the doctrines of other men.
Relax these limitations.
Cultivate a faith of eternal perspective,
where time is contained within eternity,
where the natural order
depends on the supernatural.*
St. Paul instructs,
For in him we live
and have our being.
Stretch my worldview,
bend it heavenward.
