The Sovereignty of God

The sovereignty of God is made clear…

God rules over all things. He gives strength and power and rules over nations. He owns the world. He creates, He destroys, and He prospers. God’s Word stands firm. He is a God that demands our worship and obedience. God has the right to give as He desires. God determines everything about your life. He saves you and He keeps you. He decides who is to be judged or who is to be exalted. He is majestic, powerful, and rules as a King. He is a King. All things are under His control… they work for our good and His Glory. He does not wait to see our reaction before He acts. His plans are set for His purpose…
We must change our thinking and our behavior because of the Sovereignty of God…

Other Scripture: 1 Chronicles 29:12; 2 Chronicles:20:6; Job 41:11; Isaiah 45:7, 23; Psalm 75:6-7

What does it mean that God is sovereign?

    Personally, God’s sovereignty means that no matter how many times I stomp my feet, whine, cry, plead, get impatient, or throw myself at the feet of my Father in some sort of tantrum, He lovingly and steadfastly continues with HIS plan for my life.

    I thank God for His firm adherence to His plan for my life because quite frankly, when I’m having a hysterical fit at the feet of my Lord for not getting my way, I seriously doubt that I’m capable of effectively running my own life.

    So, to me, I imagine God exercising His sovereignty by holding me at arm’s length by the top of the head while I take swings at Him while He says, “Get over yourself child, I’m doing things my way.” =)

    how relieving and encouraging is it to remember how sovereign He is! you said, “He does not wait to see our reaction before He acts. His plans are set for His purpose…” He’s intentional and steady, not giving into our every whim, but not ignoring His children. His sovereignty is His willing, capable power and goodness at work in our lives [His way & His time] -whether we recognize or acknowledge it or not.

    the lesson and lecture this week reminded me that we can moan and groan about our circumstances -that aren’t just right (or that are even seemingly unbearable) -or we can ‘look up’ and cry out to Him who hears, remembers, sees, and knows us!

    The more we look at the life of Moses, the more I realize how much I am like him. Full of weaknesses, yet allowing God to show his power in them. See you on Tuesday.
