Acts 17:25

"'And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else.'" NIV translation

Paul continues to describe God to the Athenians as he describes God as the Sustainer. Not only did God create everything but Paul tells them that all their breath comes from Him. This verse may be confusing to us today especially the part about God "not served by human hands". What Paul is saying is that God does not need us to do things for His sake as he owns everything. We do not have to build Him an altar or a temple or anything else that Paul saw as he traveled around the city in fact we can't even walk without Him.

Acts 17:26

"'From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live.'" NIV translation

Paul continues his description of God as the Great Planner. He not only explains that all came from one man but that God is big enough to have a plan for all. There are over six billion people alive in the world today and God is big enough to have a individual plan for each and every one of us. That includes those that have gone before us as well as those to be born yet. Before we were born, God set the times and places for each of us!
