“The heart of the man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.”Proverbs 16:9 ESV
It’s been a month since I have written a blog. I have been praying, seeking the words to actually describe what has constantly been on my mind, pertaining to sovereignty.
The song Sovereign God sung by Maurette Brown Clark, is set on repeat on my I phone, in the car, as well as my Pandora. Lately, when I awake early in the morning this song is in my heart.
I love it when the Lord gives me my words to write pertaining to what he wants me to say. I have been praying, seeking wisdom and knowledge as to His word. As I have written in the past. It’s funny how he operates!! He’s always on time!!
“He’s bigger than all of our problems and every situation.” I would have to say that song suits my life in many ways.
Before I begin today’s blog I would like to thank my Heavenly Father full of grace to let him know, nothing compares to His sovereign, merciful grace.
“He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have discernment and understanding.”Daniel 2:21 NIV
What the word Sovereign God means to me!!
Sovereignty of God is the Christian teaching that God is the supreme authority, all things are under His control.. Sovereignty is a attribute of God based upon the premise that God, as the creator of heaven and earth has absolute right and full authority to do or allow whatever he desires.
Authority – The Lord has sovereign over every living single human decision. We all have decisions that we make, however in the end, letting the Lord decide what’s best for us would be giving our Heavenly Father authority regardless of the outcome good or bad.
Ruler – Ruler of all the Nations the King of Kings, there is no other like Him. God that is!!
Supreme in power – The one who exercises power without limitation. The Lord to me; is the greatest, the most high of all God’s.
Superior – Being perfect in power, wisdom goodness and truth.
Greatness –There is greatness in all that God does.
Independent to all – God is free to do whatever he chooses Giving one the opportunity to choose between right and wrong. It’s called the freedom of God.
“God cannot force anyone to love Him or to receive His gift of eternal salvation through Christ Jesus. It is an act of free will.”John 1:11-13
“By the sovereignty of God, we have a free will and are able to make choices and decisions that shape our lives. While we do not posses God’s infinite power, we can surrender our hearts, souls, minds to ways that are consistent with His holy will. In this way, we honor the Creator and Sustainer of all things, recognizing God is truly sovereign.Colossians 1:16 – 17
This is what I have taken from the phrase sovereign of God. If you want to remain a victim of your own circumstance as to all the terrible situational circumstances that has happened to you in you’re life, you will loose, you now have a choice as to what relationships you want, what type of individuals you may want to surround yourself with. God is in control of every situation.
You are no longer a victim of circumstance, you have choices as to the will and act of God to who and what you allow to affect your mind and spirit.
If every decision and step you take moving forward has to do with your past, you do not have sovereign over your life.
Your heart, your path your dreams are coming from a place that’s still wounded. Until you let go and let GOD, you will be in bondage. You have completely given your power over to others. Not a good thing!!!
“God knows all things past, present and future. There is no limit to his knowledge, for God knows everything completely before it even happens.”Romans 11: 33
When you let go and take complete control over your personal sovereignty, there are rewards to this strength. You can no longer blame others for what isn’t working out in your life.#savedbyhisgrace72
In our everyday lives we face the hostility of the world. We can trust the wisdom and obey the commandments of our sovereign God who works all things out according to the purpose of His holy will.
If you do not understand your past pain, you will never understand your praise & grace of today. Do not let your past define who you are !! Trust in the Lord and be of encouragement. He will make a way!! #savedbyhisgrace72
