The Lord has established His throne in the heavens, and His sovereignty rules over all. - (Psalm 103:19)
As you seek to align your life underneath God’s kingdom agenda,you are coming underneath His sovereign rule. Sovereignty refers to God’s supremacy over all of His creation—visible and invisible. His rules are universal, absolute, and comprehensive. God is accountable to no one.
Many people don’t like or understand this word—sovereignty. But it is intrinsic within God’s character and makeup. In Psalm 103:19, David wrote, “The Lord has established His throne in the heavens, and His sovereignty rules over all.” In other words, God is not operating by anyone’s permission. He sovereignly rules over each and every one of us. He sovereignly rules over you.
Look at Psalm 115:3: “Our God is in the heavens; He does whatever He pleases.”Em- bracing that truth is a vital part to living a successful and abundant life. Recognizing that God reigns above all can give you the confidence you need to trust Him in your day-to-day decisions. After all, He is in charge.
His claim of absolute sovereignty is the claim of Perfect Deity. God alone has the right to such a claim. Yet through His gift of His son, Jesus Christ, He has opened the door freely to you to commune with the One who sits high and lifted up over all.
Reflection: In what ways is it a good thing that God is sovereign? How can God’s sovereignty give you confidence? Thank God that He is in control and He is good.
Sovereign Lord, You have established Your throne and Your rule. You tell the sun to rise, the rain to fall, the grass to grow, and the earth to rotate on its axis. Everything is dependent upon You. I want to honor You in my heart and in my choices in such a way that shows You I recognize Your kingdom rule
over all. Enable me to do this today, and each day.
