Triangle of Sovereignty

How can we trust God if we don’t know the Character of God? I mean, we say we trust in Him but who are we trusting in? Do you know?

While teaching Bible Study this morning I was drawing an illustration of our Sovereign God. I drew a picture of a triangle, put Sovereign God at the top and put us underneath. I was trying to get the point across that God is at the top and we are under HIS covering. No matter what we do, what we say, what we are thinking or what we are going through, He is still Sovereign. We are under His protection and under His grace.

What does Sovereign mean? In 1 Chronicles 29:10-11 King David acknowledged God’s sovereignty? He said, “May You be praised, LORD God of our father Israel, from eternity to eternity. Yours, LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the splendor and the majesty for everything in the heavens and on earth belongs to You. Yours, LORD, is the kingdom, and You are exalted as head over all.” HCSB

That scripture gives us just a few examples of Sovereignty; Greatness, power, glory, splendor and majesty. What else would you say is a great example of God’s Sovereignty? I’d love to hear…

May you be reminded today that no matter how you are feelings, you are under His umbrella of sovereignty and grace.
