In Him We Move

As I typed this, I was thinking of the ability to move, and how we can take that for granted.  You know that as we get older, it becomes more difficult to move for various reasons.  And usually it’s not going to get any easier.  As it becomes more and more difficult, you could become more thankful for the movement that you ever had.  These thoughts sent me in the direction of Acts 17:28, “For in him we live, and move, and have our being.”  The word “move” translates kineo from which we get kinesiology, which is the scientific study of human movement, perhaps with the emphasis on human muscles.  Muscles are a part of our movement, but there is much more to it – the brain, the nervous system, and perhaps something intangible that relates to coordination of all of these things.  You’ve heard someone say that “he couldn’t walk and chew gum at the same time.”  We actually do move in a lot of different ways at one time, which is hard to imagine.  Several of my fingers work at the same time, as well as both wrists, and my eyes coordinate with that in reading what I’m typing – all of this while thinking of what I want to type.  Yet, it is in him that we move.  We don’t move without God.  The energy to move comes from God and the source of that movement is from Him.  You don’t move without Him.  So how will you move and where?
