God’s sovereignty demands that we bow to His authority to order not only the universe but the details of each individual life according to His will and purpose. It causes us to bow in submission as we repent of our foolishness in treating Him as our cosmic Bellboy Who exists to do our bidding. Knowing that He is sovereign over all creation, and therefore over us, should plunge us into humility.
At the same time, the acknowledgement of His sovereignty offers tremendous reassurance to those who love and trust Him. We find peace, even when circumstances go against our wishes, in trusting both His wisdom and His intimate love for us. The hymn I want to feature today praises the Lord for His loving care as He directs our lives.
