The Greatness of God

“You alone are the Lord. You have made the heavens, The heaven of heavens with all their host, The earth and all that is on it, The seas and all that is in them. You give life to all of them And the heavenly host bows down before You.

Nehemiah 9:6

God is sovereign. The one, true God is transcendent and all-powerful. He rules and controls this universe.

The Almighty rules over all creation. He created and sustains all aspects of His world and God rules and governs the affairs of men. He turns the hearts of Kings to do His will though His power and might. (2 Chronicles 36:22-23)  Humans have free will. Yet, human agency is always subserviently worked out through the sovereign power of God who controls the cosmos with the power of His word.

What is the practical application for Believers as we study and learn of the sovereignty of God?  It is simply this—we can trust God. If he truly rules and reigns over this universe then we can trust God and follow Him by faith. The Lord also promises that He will use everything in our life for ultimate good. (Romans 8:28) Christians can live in assurance that God will bring us through and that we will arrive safely into His presence. The path may be rough but we can press on trusting God at every turn.

Let us give thanks to God for His rule over this universe. May we always remember that He sees and hears us and that His purposes for us will always prevail. God is great and greatly to be praised! (Psalm 48:1)
