Sovereign God

Identity.2

 

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LordAs the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9

Raise your hand if you’re a control freak! Hopefully, I’m not the only one that has their hand up. I’m the oldest of four and I was raised as an only child. So, there’s that. I am terribly independent. I have no problem doing things for myself and by myself. I rarely ask for help. I have great ideas about how my life should go. I usually think that those ideas are best.

But, then I remember that I’m not God. I am just a human with a very limited perspective. I am bound by the confines of what I can see and touch. Our God is not. He is timeless. He sees the end from the beginning. He sees beyond the natural.

I wish that He and I thought more alike than we do but, often we don’t. That’s why He is God. That’s why I am in process. And that’s why He is ridiculously patient with me.

His thoughts are higher.

His ways are perfect.

His is all together sovereign. 

 

Do you struggle with the sovereignty of God?
