Just A TASTE Of God’s Sovereignty…

“The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases” (Prov. 21:1).

After I read the book FINDING GOD and CHOSEN BY GOD, I realized later that God was just introducing me to the glory of His Sovereignty! It was a “sweet taste” of one of His Divine Attributes.

God allowed me also to read the book OUR GOD IS AWESOME by Tony Evanns and many writings of John Piper, which continued to feed me with the precious truth of God’s absolute control over the smallest particle that exists in the material world – in fact, even the unseen thoughts or will of man (!) -- up to the raging storm and the course of human history!!

Indeed, God reigns Supreme not only over the material universe, but He has complete control even in the sovereign heart (will or thought) of a human king!

Now, I realize that God’s Word (the Bible) asserts, insists, emphasizes, promotes and declares the ABSOLUTE Sovereignty of God!

For example, Proverbs 16:9, “In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.”

Another one, “Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails” (Prov. 19:21).

Be fascinated with His Sovereignty... the Bible offers the main course.

How do you explain po na on earth, God's will is not done 100% pero in heaven it is done. Kasi po ang Lord's prayer "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven..."
