Surrendering to the Sovereignty of Almighty God

The LORD has established His throne in the heavens, and His sovereignty rules over all.

  Psalm 103:19


Have you forgotten that Almighty God is in complete control?  Knowing that our LORD is in complete control - sovereign - should give us a sense of comfort.  God has supreme, independent authority over all things, situations, and circumstances.  When we embrace the sovereignty of God, we are able to experience divine inner comfort and peace.


For Almighty God to be sovereign, means that He has unlimited command of all things.  But our citizenship is in heaven.  And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body - Philippians 3:20-21.  God is in authority over EVERYTHING.  The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word.....Hebrews 1:3.  God works out everything according to His plan and purpose.  He brings all things under His mighty lordship and he sustains all things.


Therefore whatever situation or circumstance you are facing, know deep in your soul that Almighty God will work it out.  He will bring it under His control and authority and He will sustain you through the difficult season.  If Jesus is your Savior and LORD, take comfort in knowing that your life is under the authority of a loving, eternal God.


When we place our faith in God's control - sovereignty - we will not waiver through unbelief.  We will be strengthened in our faith.  We will give glory to our LORD and we will know deep in our souls that God has the power to fulfill His promises.  Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised - Romans 4:20-21.


Rest in the sovereignty of God today.  Take comfort in knowing He always keeps His promises and He will always stay true to His character.  Hannah Whitall Smith wrote these beautiful words, "Divine comfort does not come to us in any mysterious or arbitrary way.  It comes as the result of a divine method.  The indwelling Comforter brings to our remembrance comforting things concerning our Lord.  If we believe them, we are comforted by them."


Dear Heavenly Father, help us to accept Your sovereignty.  LORD, provide us with comfort and peace as we journey towards our Heavenly home.  Strengthen our faith dear LORD.  In Jesus Name I Pray.....Amen.
