O Sovereign Lord! There is no one like you.
—2 Samuel 7:22
Musing on the sovereignty of God, Charles Swindoll noted a smaller word nested inside the big word sovereignty: reign—sove-reign-ty.
Sovereignty means our all-knowing, all-powerful God reigns in ways beyond our understanding, causing things to happen that are outside the limits of our reach.
God’s sovereignty never sleeps. It is at work in tragedy and triumph, pain and pleasure.
His plans and presence are sometimes obscure from our human vantage point. But faith assures us that his hand is on the controls even when we encounter clouds of helplessness and heartache.
“How great you are, O Sovereign Lord! There is no one like you, and there is no God but you” (2 Sm 7:22).
God’s sovereignty mops up our messes.
