Rejoice in God’s Sovereignty

Rejoice in God’s Sovereignty

The next time you fear the future, rejoice in the Lord’s sovereignty.

Rejoice in what he has accomplished.

Rejoice that he is able to do what you cannot do.


Fill your mind with thoughts of God.


“He is the Creator, who is blessed forever” (Romans 1:25).

“He is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).

“His years will never end” (Psalm 102:27 NIV).


He is king, supreme ruler, absolute monarch, and overlord of all history.


An arch of his eyebrow and a million angels will pivot and salute!

Every throne is a footstool to his.

Every crown is paper-mache next to his.


He follows no worldly kings.

He consults no advisers.

He needs no congress.

He reports to no one.

He is in charge.


Sovereignty gives the saint the inside track to peace.


Others see the problems of the world and wring their hands.


We see the problems of the world and bend our knees!




In today’s crazy world… remember His Words…  “Mankind will say, ‘Surely there is a reward for the righteous; surely there is a God who judges on earth.’” Psalm 58:11


Indeed, David was frustrated.

He was even angry… as he looked at and experienced the actions of other people.

Many did not seem concerned about doing the right thing or concerned about the consequences of their actions.

Many seemed so self-centered that they didn’t care about the impact of their actions and continued lies or concern for the truth.

Indeed, through their actions… they were like “the venom of a serpent,” stinging deeply, hurting.

They even closed their ears to the cries of the affected… the needy… those would would give them good counsel.


David was so passionate about the wounds he witnessed that he cried out to God to take action.

It wasn’t enough that God knew what was going on: David desired that God would make things right.

That God would “break the teeth in their mouths.”


David desired that those with these kinds of attitudes would “vanish like water that runs away.”

David’s prayer was that God would display His righteous indignation and pour out His wrath on all those who lived in such a way.

David felt that “the righteous will rejoice when he sees the vengeance.”

When they saw justice being done.


How frustrating it must be… it can be to be a victim of broken promises and evil and false manipulations… Even if some come from well-intentioned people.



The Bible reminds us that all people are flawed.

The Word counsels us that all make mistakes and commit sins.


The fact is that people may fall short…

Some may make promises they don’t keep…

Some may even habitually lie and scheme… But God is faithful.


He promises that, eventually, justice will be done.


That everyone, in every nation, will say, “Surely there is a reward for the righteous; surely there is a God who judges on earth.”


Draw ever so close to our Savior…

Let His Holy Spirit protect and guide you… Let His Grace define your thoughts and actions… Pray for those, who through their actions, demonstrate that they are not carrying our His Will… and may not know Him Pray that they repent and come to Him… For one day… in a nanosecond… it will be too late.
