GOD IS SOVEREIGN

God’s sovereignty, as I am convinced the Bible teaches it, means that God has fore-ordained everything that happens. Before creation, God planned and decided (“ordained”) the entire course of human history down to the smallest details. All circumstances in time are therefore the outworking of God’s plan which He decreed in eternity before the beginning of time. Clearly, God’s sovereignty does not remove the need for and reality of our choices however, my rhetorical question is why do we try to understand with a finite mind that which is infinite? Truth is, we inadvertently and subconsciously want control. Control in it of itself fosters a false sense of safety and security. Proverbs 3:5 says to trust God with our whole hearts and don’t depend on our own understanding. So today, I encourage you to trust God even when it don’t make sense. Trusting God requires obedience and as we know obedience is better than sacrifice. If you or someone you know is experiencing some difficult times, remember that God loves you/them and His sovereignty will always bring you/them safely to Him!
