He Has The Whole World In His Hand

He Has The Whole World In His Hand

We have this popular song which is sung at popular meetings of Christians of recent  ages:

He has the whole world in His Hands (2ce).

He has the whole world in His Hands.

He has the mummies and the daddies

In His Hands.

He has the little Children in His Hands

He has the whole world in His Hands.

This song relates to  :

” In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth”. (Genesis 1:1).

This is basic fact about creation. Men build aircrafts  and ocean going vessels, but such devices cannot be carried in the hands of the makers. God made the heavens and the earth and they are carried  in His Hands.


The Sermon Of the day  :

And God said :

32:39 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.32:40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever.32:41 If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me.32:42 I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy. (Deuteronomy 32 : 39  – 42.)

 God in the above tells us who He is:

Note what He is:

  1. He kills and makes alive.
  2. He wounds and heals.
  3. He lifts up His hands to heaven and say ” I live forever “
  4. None can deliver from His Hand.
  5. He takes judgement upon  His enemies.
  6. Renders vengeance on His enemies and them that hate Him.

If God tells us He has the whole world in His hands , is there any reason to doubt what He can do?. Enemies of God are truly in trouble. The people of the world are doing what ever they like and do not fear God who created them,  including the things they boast about.

Leaders voice big and provocative statements. without considering their Maker.  Let us not forget that no one can just say anything without reference to acknowledging  the power of God and go free.

His words are final towards all flesh and also final in the spiritual realm.

The gods Of The Peoples Of The World Are Nothing.

Peoples of the world have their own ethnic gods,  which are  not their  creator. They give their gods all sorts of names as they see them. These gods are  unique to them and not to other nations. Their gods have no power to deliver. So Satan in his usual deceit, creates a level of assurance that they will do great things through their god  and  at all times his followers have suffered disappointments in the hands of these gods. Since God has the whole world in His hands , He has all problems and  victories , life and death, and any imaginable thing that crosses this world in His hands.

He is The Almighty God.

In the following scriptures He tells us:

(1) And to Abraham:

17:1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.( Genesis 17:1).

(2) And to Moses :

While speaking to Moses God said : “And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD  And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty,  but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them. (Exodus 6:2-3).

( 3) And in the book of Revelation :

In the Revelation to John the Divine the message opened up:

” I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” (Revelation 1:8).

What Does  the Almighty mean?

Two distinct things emerge : (1) Power to bless and do all things.

(2) Power to deny to bless and to humiliate those who hate Him..

Therefore faithful people from all over the world draw from the fountain of God and all the arrogant nations,  who hate God and who are doing all they can to suppress the gospel, are all out to face great trouble soon.

What Comes To Us  From the position Of God.

The following scriptures speak faithfully about God:

(1) Ps.  47:7

“For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.”

(2) Ecc. 5:2

“Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.” (Ecclesiastes 5:2)

(3) Job  36:5.

“Behold, God is mighty, and despiseth not any: he is mighty in strength and wisdom.” (Job 36:5)


We must fear God at every time :  in what ever situation,  whether poor or rich, sick or well , ignored or  praised, despised or  accepted,  we must fear Him. We have to be  more mindful of  what we say in all of these life threatening situations  or  in joyous moments or situations for we read from  above ” ….. for God is in heaven and thou upon the earth”. ( Ecc. 5:2).

The fear of God prolongs days:

“That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged. (Deuteronomy 6:2).

What people say without deep consideration could determine what could happen to them in future. Therefore , I pray and say to Almighty Daddy, please count not our foolish or boastful talks against us.

Fear Of God brings provision:

“O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.” (Psalm 34:9).

Even after we have done our very best,  only God waters our fields that our crops may do well. There is no true or good success in any man without the hand of God.

The best of human devices have no assurance there will be no crisis as the devices are operated. The builders of the ship, Titanic boasted that even God cannot sink the ship. What happened ?

No matter how much you know, take God’s word with respect, even if it does not make sense to you initially. The truth of God’s word is hidden from fools.

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. (Proverbs 1:7)

He has the whole world in His hands and this is unquestionable.

Walk In The Wisdom Of  God.

After the tempest of life. there could be calm depending on what God wants to do. And in this, let us walk in the fear of God obeying Him in all things. God has never failed His people and will multiply them. There is  nothing which God does which is wrong, no matter how people see or perceive them.

“Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied.” (Acts 9:31).

He has the whole world in His Hands and this being the case,  we can be assured He is able to stand in the gap for us  in all dimensions. Let us  fear Him and keep His commandments. Remain blessed in His Almighty Hand.
