"AND HE IS BEFORE ALL THINGS, AND BY HIM ALL THINGS CONSIST."
NOTICE THAT POWERFUL WORD. "HE IS BEFORE ALL THINGS."
Jesus is before all things. He is in front of all things and He is not behind in anything.
We live in a society that is behind in all things. Many say I am behind in everything. Others say I don't know how I am going to catch up.
THIS IS WORTH SAYING AGAIN. HE IS NOT BEHIND IN ANYTHING.
This is what makes that word so powerful. He is before all things. I need to come to the front of the line instead of the back of the line.
I need to come from trying to catch up to caught up. So to remove from being behind I need to identify with Jesus and be before all things.
By Him all things consist. Jesus is the one who will make this happen. He will raise you up. Instead of always looking behind to see what is following you look ahead to see who you are walking with at the front of the line. All you will see is good.
When you look back where you came from, you won't see bad you will see good. Jesus will cause you to see good on the left, good on the right, good on the top, good on the bottom.
Can I tell you that good is looking for you. God is a good name, but we can also call Him good. He has this miracle for you. This is the miracle to bring you from behind to before. I had rather be before instead of behind.
