I declare that your steadfast love is established forever; your faithfulness is as firm as the heavens.” vs. 2Psalm 89:1-4
According to Wikipedia a theory of everything is a hypothetical, singular, all- encompassing, coherent theoretical framework of physics that fully explains and links together all aspects of the universe. To this point no one has been able to construct such a framework–it is one of the unsolved problems of physics. Some theories have been proposed, but none have provided a satisfactory solution. The psalmist does, however, have an answer, and it’s probably as good as any and likely better than most. He declares that the steadfast love of God is the foundation of the universe, and all that exists is knit together by that one guiding principle. While that idea may not satisfy the criteria demanded by physicists, growing numbers of people of all religious backgrounds are coming to affirm the truth of his observation. It suggests that from the beginning, through billions of years, every step of creation has been guided by love. And when we pause in our meditation and take time to consider the intricacies and interconnectedness of our universe, it’s hard to escape that conclusion. There seems to be no doubt about it–the universe, the world, is inexplicably good, as good as good can be, and it’s all the product of love. We don’t often think of love in such universal terms, but there’s no denying its impact in our daily lives. Even on a micro level love can shape and mold lives, and it all has its origin in God!
