The Attributes of God: Sovereignty

Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father.
(Matthew 10:29)

And he blessed him and said, “Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth;
(Genesis 14:19)

Our God is in the heavens; he does all that he pleases.
(Psalm 115:3)

In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will

Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
(Jude 24-25)

Having a sovereign God is good news for the believer.

Sovereignty tells of God’s divine control over everything that happens. There is nothing outside the control of His loving Hand: not the designs of the wicked (even the plans of history’s most evil dictators), not the way the earth works itself seemingly against the lives of men (such as the recent earthquake in Turkey), not the workings of demons (or even Satan), and not my own free will. Romans 8:28 tells us that all things work together for the good of God’s children and verses 38-39 implies that there is nothing beyond the control of God’s sovereign hand. God’s sovereignty is a huge source of comfort to the believer, for it helps him to know that no matter how chaotic any situation may seem, he really need not fear for God is still in charge and on the throne (and that combined with His love is unassailable).
