He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands- Part 1

Part 1 of “A Childlike Faith” Series

I help out at my church’s preschool ministry once a month, and the sweet voices of these little kids are the most beautiful thing I hear all week.

Usually I’m in a classroom, but this time I was in the “theater” where the kids sing songs, play games, and learn a Bible story. It sounds awful to say, but I always hope I won’t be in the theater because I love interacting with the kids more than telling them constantly to please sit down. But now… well, I’m glad I was in the theater that day.

Chaos has taken over our country. Shootings, terrorism, and fear reign over our hearts. God doesn’t want that at all! When we fear these things, we let satan (uncapitalized because he doesn’t deserve a capital s) take over.

The music starts and the song is none other than “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.” I look around at these little children raising their voices to God and motioning with their arms to try to grasp just how much God has control over.

And I nearly cry.

He’s got the whole world in His hands…”

“He’s got the tiny little babies in His hands…”

“He’s got you and me in His hands…”

These are God’s promises to us. He holds the world and has a plan for everything that happens. He holds us and comforts us when we cry to Him. He holds the parents of dead children, He holds the families of shooting victims. He holds you and me when we hurt. He holds the whole world in His hands.

And we can’t lose sight of that. Ever.

So whatever you do today… remember that He’s got the whole world in His Hands. Sing this song to Him, praise Him, acknowledge that you know the simple yet powerful truth: He’s got the whole world in His hands.

“He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands”

1. He´s got the whole world in His hands,

|: He´s got the whole world in His hands, 😐

He´s got the whole world in His hands.

2. He´s got the wind and the rain in His hands,

|: He´s got the wind and the rain in His hands, 😐

He´s got the whole world in His hands.

3. He´s got the the tiny little baby in His hands,

He´s got the whole world in His hands.

4. He´s got you and me, brother, in His hands,

|: He´s got you and me, brother, in His hands, 😐

He´s got the whole world in His hands.

5. He’s got ev’rybody here in His hands.

|: He’s got ev’rybody here in His hands. 😐

He’s got the whole world in His hands.

  1. Ah I love this. So many times I have thought about having faith so strong and innocent as a 5-year-old’s. This is really encouraging for me today, Annie ❤
