Rules Over All

The Lord has established His throne in the heavens, And His sovereignty rules over all. Psalm 103:19

Have you ever thought about the statement “His sovereignty rules over all”? “Sovereign: a supreme ruler. a person who has supreme power or authority”. Does that mean over all earth, all the nations of the earth, and over every living being of the earth?

What about the kings, presidents, and other rulers of the world? Did God put all powers in their place? Daniel 2:21 says, It is He (God) who removes kings and establishes kings. God has a plan. We may not think that all is right in the world but we can trust that God has a plan and all things happen to fulfill His plan. Our trust is not to be in the government, the ruler of the nation where we live, or in any living being. Our trust is to be in God and God alone.

God alone is our King and reigns over the nations for He sits on His holy throne. Next time life is getting you down because of all the chaos in the world around us, remember that God is still on His throne and He has a plan. He is Sovereign. Behold, to the Lord your God belong heaven and the highest heavens, the earth and all that is in it. (Deuteronomy 10:14)

So, I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who testified the good confession before Pontius Pilate, that you keep the commandment without stain or reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which He will bring about at the proper time—He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen. (1 Timothy 6:13-16)

Continually seeking Him,

Sharon
