Our Lord is before all things and in Him all things consist. In Him all things are held together. Nothing will happen today He did not pre-know, and He has given His authority to us, to be vitally involved, participating with Him by faith, in both prayer and action.

The Lord presides over everything today and before we experience or even realize He is already there, holding it all together. This order was established in the beginning: “And He is before all things and in him all things consist.” (Col 1:17)

The Kingdom of God is among men. His working in our lives and the outcome of that involvement will be determined in what we believe about Him. To the extent we believe Him, we can participate with Him as the day unfolds. He has the preeminence.
