Some Reminders for Us about God's Soverignty by Melanie Campbell
Question: What comes to your mind when you consider God’s sovereignty?
When I was new to my faith, the concept intimidated me. It reminded me of how I often felt when I stood on the beach and watched the ocean. Though I was in awe of the beauty and vastness of the sea, I was wary of the destructive force of the water. I live in Oregon and on our beaches, it is not unusual to have sneaker waves—large, powerful waves that appear without warning. They are impossible to predict and often surge high up on the beach with deadly force.
I felt just as insignificant and powerless standing on the edge of the ocean as I did in my relationship with God.
What Does Sovereignty Mean?
In my mind, God was like the ocean: vast, awe-inspiring, and powerful, but also unpredictable and capable of allowing bad things to happen to accomplish His purposes. What did my prayers and longings matter in light of God’s authority?
If you look in the dictionary, you’ll find the definition of sovereignty to be something along the lines of “supreme power or authority.” While finding a concise biblical definition is difficult, most people would say that God is sovereign means God is God. He has supreme power and authority over everything.
Below are fifteen scriptures to remind us of God’s sovereignty. While there are many more verses than these that describe the all-encompassing power of God, I chose these because in combination, they explain both God’s sovereignty and why we can find comfort in His sovereignty.
“For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.”
“Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him.”
“Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!”
Remember through it all, we are Gods children!!!!!
