“Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto Thy name give glory, for Thy mercy, and for Thy truth’s sake. Wherefore should the heather say, Where is now their God? But our God is in the heavens; He hath done whatsoever He hath pleased” (Psalm 115:1-3).
“The sovereignty of God is a tremendous blessing and encouragement to me,” Dick said as he drank a little more coffee. He was out to breakfast with a group of men from his church, and together they were sharing about the events of their lives that past week. Their server poured more coffee for the men and couldn’t help but overhear the conversation. “I don’t mean to be listening in,” she said. “I am a new Christian, and I don’t know what sovereignty means. Would you mind explaining it to me briefly? My boss wants each of us to hurry up because we’re busy,” she continued. Dick spoke up quickly, “It simply means that we know God is God and we are not. He is in charge and has all authority to do whatever He wishes to do! The great news is that God is also merciful and true. Therefore, we can trust Him even when we don’t understand what He is doing at the moment.” It was a powerful teaching moment in the life of a new Christian.
For today: I am glad that I can trust in the Lord and rest in His sovereignty. How about you?
