He is sovereign over creation
11“ You are worthy, O Lord,
To receive glory and honor and power;
For You created all things,
And by Your will they exist and were created.”
1 The Lord reigns, He is clothed with majesty;
The Lord is clothed,
He has girded Himself with strength.
Surely the world is established, so that it cannot be moved.
22It is He who sits above the circle of the earth,
And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers,
Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,
And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.
He is sovereign over human life
1 Chronicles 29:12
12Both riches and honor come from You,
And You reign over all.
In Your hand is power and might;
In Your hand it is to make great
And to give strength to all.
2 Chronicles 25:8
8 But if you go, be gone! Be strong in battle! Even so, God shall make you fall before the enemy; for God has power to help and to overthrow.”
51 He has shown strength with His arm;
He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
52 He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
And exalted the lowly.
53 He has filled the hungry with good things,
And the rich He has sent away empty.
15 Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.”
He is sovereign over the minutest details of life
29 Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
He is sovereign in electing his people
11 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will,
Romans 8:29; 9:11
8:29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
9:11 (for the children not yet being born, nor having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works but of Him who calls),
9:18 Therefore He has mercy on whom He wills, and whom He wills He hardens.
He is sovereign in the life and salvation of his people
1 Corinthians 1:30
30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption—
6 “O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter?” says the Lord. “Look, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel!
1 Corinthians 12:11
11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.
18 Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.
He is sovereign over the sufferings of believers
29 For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake, 30 having the same conflict which you saw in me and now hear is in me.
1 Peter 3:17
17 For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.
He is sovereign over world history
1 The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord,
Like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes.
16 But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth.
28 For the kingdom is the Lord’s,
And He rules over the nations.
35All the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing;
He does according to His will in the army of heaven
And among the inhabitants of the earth.
No one can restrain His hand
Or say to Him, “What have You done?”
This is what non-Christians and religions other than Christianity do not have. They do not have Jesus Christ (who is the power of God), who created the church and gave Jews and gentiles in His church the hope of glory. The others also do not have Jesus to represent us before God or a way to God’s heaven.
God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?
Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
