He does whatever He pleases

The Sovereignty of GodWhen I begin to think of the sovereignty of God my eyes widen, my heart is filled with hope and my mind thinks of so many good things that God does.

What does He do? Anything that He please… But our God is in the heavens; He does whatever He pleases. Psalm 115:3.

Anything that He please! That’s a reassuring thought for a believer in Jesus Christ and a fearful thought for the unbeliever and for any who have other gods. He does anything that He pleases, our God sits above the circle of the earth Isaiah 40:22. He is the perfect and only Sovereign of the universe, who always does His will in heaven and on earth. The sovereignty of God means that He does whatever He pleases, wherever He pleases and when ever He pleases. Our God is in heaven above always in control of all things, and whatever He does is alway good, always just and always right.

and that’s a beautiful thingDaniel says All the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing, But He does according to His will in the host of heaven And among the inhabitants of earth; And no one can ward off His hand Or say to Him, ‘What have You done?” Daniel 4:35

“Remember the former things long past,
For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is no one like Me,

Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things which have not been done,
Saying, ‘My purpose will be established,
And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’;

Calling a bird of prey from the east,
The man of My purpose from a far country.
Truly I have spoken; truly I will bring it to pass.
I have planned it, surely I will do it. Isaiah 46:9-11

So we praise Him and worship the One who is in control…  If you’re reading this as a believer in Jesus Christ, and it seems that life has dealt you a hard blow, that the future is not looking so great now, remember who your God is and where He sits. He says ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’ and we as Christians know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

God said Truly I have spoken; truly I will bring it to pass. I have planned it, surely I will do it.

That gives me great joy, hope and peace for the future

and that’s a beautiful thing!
Soli Deo Gloria

    Along the lines of your message this morning…..

    One day I was really struggling with an issue , and a friend looked me in the eye and said:
    Just remember TWO things today:

    1. God is ALWAYS good.
    2. God is ALWAYS in control.

    Though a paraphrase of Scripture, these two short sentences are a help to me when ever my thinking gets crooked. They help me focus on what is pure Truth, and NOT on whatever may be going on around me.

    Maybe they can help someone else.

  2. and that’s a beautiful thing!

    Thanks Judy
