Do you believe God is sovereign?
This is not a trick question.
Give this question a good hard think before you answer. If your answer is yes, that is very good.
And then my next question for you will be -
Do you realize how huge this is? What this actually means?
Over the last couple of years my family has come to study and begin to understand that God being sovereign is, um…
than we ever thought.
Adjectives escape me.
As do nouns. Verbs. Past participles…
I guess I’m kinda getting off track here.
Anyway, I was appalled to discover that I never really did believed in God’s sovereignty until these last 2 years, until we started studying reformed theology.
Seriously. Until a few years ago I didn’t even know what the word theology meant. And I thought being reformed was just another way of saying born again.
I imagine most professing Christians do reply with a yes when asked the sovereignty questions point blank. But when it really came down to it,
denied the truth of it right and left with my actions, with my interpretations, all the while still proclaiming it with my tongue.
Even now it’s somewhat of a struggle to remember His sovereignty - my old habits and ways of thinking so ingrained in me.
But then I imagine what my life would be like if it were actually me in control. Yikes!
Good grief! I’m a mess. Anything I’d attempt to control would likely end up a disaster too.
It isn’t really something I can explain – there are people much more articulate than I, who are more capable of making the point.
That whole english grammar issue I have might have something to do with that.
And there are books written about it that I can’t begin to comprehend. But that doesn’t stop me from believing it. Or needing to proclaim it.
God is sovereign.
Think on that.
