Dear friends, God’s sovereignty is one of the most fundamental truths of the Christian faith. It means that God is supreme in power, authority, and dominion over all of creation.
He reigns and rules over everything – from the greatest galaxies to the smallest subatomic particle. Nothing happens outside of His divine will and purposes.
This is seen even in the very beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth out of nothing. He spoke light, land, vegetation, creatures, and humankind into existence. All that exists came into being at His command.
Throughout history we see God guiding the affairs of nations and individuals to accomplish His plans. He raises up kings and brings down kingdoms. He directs history through prophets, judges, kings and events according to His perfect timing.
In our own lives, God is completely sovereign. He knows the number of hairs on our heads and not a single sparrow falls without the Father’s knowledge. He guides our steps, opens and closes doors, and works out all the details of our lives for our good and His glory.
Even when we can’t see it or understand it, we can trust in God’s wisdom and sovereignty. He will accomplish His perfect will. What an awesome, mighty and sovereign God we serve! One day every knee will bow before Him.
