God’s Sovereignty

Let us lift up our hearts and our hands to God in heaven and say: “We have sinned and rebelled and you have not forgiven.”  ~ Lamentations 3:41 – 42

One of my greatest fears is that I will lose sight of the sovereignty of God.  I pray that I will always be aware of His holiness, His power, His might … for as we lose sight of those things of WHO He is … we easily forget how deep our need for Him really is.

God’s choice is to forgive … it is not His obligation.  We are not owed the mercy He offers nor can we merit the grace He bestows.

As we continue to prepare our hearts for Easter celebration, I believe it is necessary for us to stop and recognize the majesty and sovereignty of our God.  He whose name is, “I AM.”

I urge you to take time today to read Job 38 – 42.  Allow God to remind you, as He did Job, of His greatness … and as you read, be humbled that this God of all creation longs to call you His own.  That in His sovereignty, He willingly offers us relationship.

Great Jehovah God … I AM … today we kneel before You.  Humbled by the vastness of who You are and recognizing as did the Psalmist, “What is man that You are mindful of him?”  In our smallness, Lord, show us Your bigness … and may we live in the sweet truth that in our weakness, You are strong.  We praise You for we know no other response!  In Your Son’s Name, Amen.
