THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD


THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD

Everything going on around us in the world today is a distraction that seems to contradict the sovereignty and purpose of almighty God.

Global conflicts, oppressive government regimes, massive suffering, and the dominance of evil readily create doubts regarding whether or not God is in control.

The absence of any moral conviction in our society and the prominence of materialistic self-serving values can cause us to wonder if the gospel is real. Is it truly capable of bringing change that affirms the power of God and the redemption assured by Christ’s death?

We often ask: Why am I confronted with constant conflict, criticism, and stress caused by situations and those who seem to have no respect for Christian principles?

The answer is because we live in a rebellious world in which not only individuals but nations and cultures have rejected the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

But let me assure you, God has established His throne in the heavens and anointed His Son with all power and authority; He sees all that is happening. And one day God will be exalted among the nations.

Some time ago when I was going through challenges of public criticism and trials, I received these words of encouragement: “Keep your eyes on the One who sits on the throne, And remember your attitude is more important than circumstances.

Regardless of how badly people behave, our battle is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities, powers, and rulers of darkness. The devil does not play fair and he will use any means possible to gain a foot-hold in your life. Anything from addictions, fear, anxiety, rejection, rebellion, anger, pride, insecurity, and the list almost never ends.

But the point is: God is still on the throne and no matter what is going on in the world today or how the devil attacks us individually, God has the answer.

So what’s the answer:

First, it is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ (not just saying I am a Christian, but being able to say I am a born again believer in Jesus Christ and I put my trust in Him.)

Secondly, God has provided a way to set us free and it is called deliverance

(casting out demons).
