Therefore it was not you who sent me here, but God. He has made me a father to Pharaoh, lord of his entire household, and ruler over all the land of Egypt. – Genesis 45:8


Is God sovereign or not?

Under some circumstances, this question is a little more difficult to answer in the affirmative. For example, Joseph saw the sovereignty of God in his life, but I am pretty sure that he often wondered, “Why am I here? What is God doing?”

Of course, God is Lord … of all … or He cannot be properly called Lord. He never abdicates His sovereign rule … ever. When things are beyond understanding our task is simple. We must: 1) Give Him glory, 2) Wait for Him to act, and 3) Trust that He will act in a way that accomplishes His eternal plan.

We will understand it better by and by … or we won’t … or in His presence it won’t matter, but He will still be sovereign.

Our fates are in the hands of an Almighty God, to whom I can with pleasure confide my own; He can save us, or destroy us; His Councils are fixed and cannot be disappointed, and all His designs will be accomplished. – Abraham Clark
