God Is Sovereign

Psalms 115:3 - "But our God is in the heavens, He hath done whatsoever He pleases."
Isaiah 43:13 - "None can deliver out of my hand."

Are you close to quitting? Please don't. Are you discouraged as a parent? Hang in there. Are you weary with doing good? Do just a little more. Are you pessimistic about your job? Be thankful you have one. Can't resist temptation? Accept God's forgiveness and go one more round. Sometimes God moves just because He is God.

Easter Sunday one year ago I met the sovereign God in our church. I thought the salvation of someone dear to me was hopeless. They came to our service and the sign team got up to sign their Easter song. It was a simple song signed by simple people about a simple message. But there in that church service Jesus touched this person. Later they told me the story. They sat in the service and the most sovereign God touched their heart and they cried. The story was much more beautiful than I can write but I know He moves when He wants to. It doesn't matter if we want it or believe it. If it fits God's fancy and He wants to do something then it is done. He doesn't have to answer to anyone. He is Just in everything He does.

I think I need to realize God is sovereign and I really don't have to worry and fret. Our world is in a mess, the economy is not good, people are worried about the coming storm. We, as God's people, should not be down or depressed. We serve a Big Jesus. He does just as He pleases. He is faithful even when we are not!

He fed thousands with one basket and calmed the storm with one command. He raised the dead with one proclamation and changed lives with one request. He rerouted the history of the world with His one life.

He alone is sovereign and He does whatever pleases Him!

How awesome!
