God is Sovereign
What does this even mean? If you look Sovereign up in the dictionary it will define it as “a monarch”, “king”, “queen”, “a supreme ruler”, and “supreme power or authority”. So what does this mean when it applies to God? What does God is Sovereign have to do with all mankind?
God Stands Alone
Job 23:13 But he stands alone, and who can oppose him? He does whatever he pleases. He can do whatever he wants to. God created the universe because he made a choice to do it. Also let me make this point God did not become better or happier because he created the universe. Heb 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. God is in control!
Well did he give us free will?
YES, in his sovereignty he did. Another words God chose to give you free will.
If I obey Him do I get more of the blessing of God?
YES, God in his sovereignty made it that way! God chose for it to be that way.
Why did God make me?
God didn’t make you because he had to. He didn’t make you because he needed to. He made you because it gave hime good pleasure to do so. You bring pleasure to God! Rev 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
God is self-sufficient needing nothing outside of himself. God created all but is in depended of all. He created everything but didn’t need them. Heb 11:34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? God didn’t create knowledge to be taught, he created knowledge to teach. God is not a taking God, he is a giving God. God created things so he could give them away and that gives him pleasure. 35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? 36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen. God created things to give them away and that brings him pleasure.
