“One Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.” (Ephesians 4:5-6).
God is sovereign. He is the omnipotent (all powerful), omniscient (all wise), omnipresent (present everywhere at once) creator of all things and the absolute authority.
Sometimes we live our lives as if God were a genie in a bottle. We go about doing what we please until we need help. Then we uncork the bottle and ask the “genie” to come out and solve our problems. Then when things are running smoothly, we just put Him back into the bottle and put the cork back in.
Unfortunately, that’s not the way it works. Our responsibility as followers of the sovereign God is to obey His instructions on a day-by-day basis, knowing that He will guide us.
“You will call, and the Lord will answer; . . . ‘Here I am.’ . . . The Lord will continually guide you” (Isaiah 58:9, 11).
The great joy we have is that God is also a loving, caring, comforting Father. All He wants is our fellowship with Him. He likes doing good things for us.
With our finite thinking, it is hard for us to grasp the immensity of a sovereign God. When we pass from this life into the next life, we will understand the sovereignty of God and His love, because He is waiting with open arms to welcome us.
How much fellowship with the Lord do you experience? What can you do to make it better?
