Sovereign means excellent and possessed of supreme power. God’s sovereignty is the attribute by which He rules His entire creation.
1 Chronicles 29:11-13
“Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Yours is the dominion, O LORD, and You exalt Yourself as head over all. Both riches and honor come from You, and You rule over all, and in Your hand is power and might; and it lies in Your hand to make great and to strengthen everyone. Now therefore, our God, we thank You, and praise Your glorious name.”
1 Timothy 6:15-16
…which He will bring about at the proper time–He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see To Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen.
The LORD has established His throne in the heavens, And His sovereignty rules over all.
While God gives us things like toys and houses to be “in charge of,” God is still sovereign over everything in our lives – even those same toys and houses He gives to us. The sovereign power of God also shows how He uses sinful people to accomplish His purposes. No matter how broken apart we are (see the half eaten roof on the left?), He still has the power to use us in His work!
Thank you, Lord, for Your sovereign power!
