As I was putting together a daily devotional, I was matched with the idea of God’s sovereignty! We absolutely do limit His power, and as a result, the work of the Holy Spirit remains inactive in how we possess health, wealth, abundance, and fruitfulness. The Holy Spirit leads us into all truth and reveals the depths of God’s heart to humanity. No matter how many times we come up with reasons for why it is impossible for something to happen, we are constantly out-matched by God’s sovereignty. The sovereignty of God says that He is the ultimate source of power and authority in the Earth. He has sovereign rule over and throughout the Earth. When we consider God’s sovereignty, we must capture the thought of Him being superior to our human thoughts and limitations. He knows all, sees all, and has a solution for ALL! Believer or unbeliever, we are all under the governing of His sovereign rule.
“That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.”
THAT’S RIGHT! Matthew 5:25 says that none can escape Him! Our testimonies are designed to empower our faith for the next test and trial. Sometimes you must say, “Lord, I feel so uncertain, but I know that YOU ARE CERTAIN!” This is telling God that in the moment of doubt and uncertainty, I am putting my entire existence in the hands of my Savior so that the manifestation of His wonders will point directly to His sovereign rule over my life. With each test, your faith should become stronger and stronger, just as if you were building your faith muscle to acquire more of God’s power to move mountains in future situations. Will future occurences look like the last obstacle? Maybe! It just may look a little different from the last outcome, but we must trust that His gavel serves as the final ruling and that nothing and no one sits on the throne but Him!
His sovereign rule should motivate us to run to Him. We should be compelled to humble ourselves before Him as we acknowledge that His way and thoughts are not like ours and everything about Him is so much greater! The trust that we must have for God should be greater than the trust we have in ourselves. God loves us and only has good things in store for us. The winds of life may seem harsh, but God has command over the winds.
“When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:”
So the next time you are feeling overwhelmed, STOP! Change your thinking! Let this be the day where your worry comes to an end! The king’s heart is in His hands. What you ask God to do in faith and assurance will manifest right before your eyes. Your words give life and power. Whose report will you believe? It is time for you to believe the report of the Lord and allow the Word to captivate you into another reality!
Because of His sovereign rule: death is defeated, lack is defeated, and sickness is defeated! You can partner with the sovereign King and decree what He already had in mind to establish!
HEU: “JUST SPEAK THE WORD!”
