This is Derek Prince with a word for you from the Word.

“Your faithfulness [O Lord] continues through all generations; you established the earth, and it endures. Your laws endure to this day, for all things serve you.” (Psalm 119:90–91 NIV)

The power behind the universe is not something purely physical. It’s not atoms or electrons or other scientific objects, but it’s the Word of God. In the New Testament, we are told that the heavens were formed by the Word of God. The universe, the things which are seen, were not made of things that do appear. That behind the whole world is that invisible, irresistible, creative and sustaining power of the Word of God. God’s laws govern this universe. They may be invisible, but they’re very real and according to this word that I’ve read, all things serve God.

Isn’t that a wonderful thought? Everything in the universe is fulfilling God’s laws and working out His purposes. And His purposes center in His people so that all God’s laws are really working together for our benefits.

In the New Testament, Paul tells some Christians, “All things are for your sakes.” Can you grasp that? God’s laws and purposes – they are all for us. They’re all working out that which is good for us and they control the universe. Many other factors may seem to enter in, but ultimately its God’s laws that settle our destiny.
