THIS is Eternal Life!
It’s a simple question really, but few people seem to want to think about how important it is to know the right answer: “Is God in control over everything?” To be “sovereign” means to possess supreme or ultimate power. Certainly, there is no one on earth who is sovereign, even though some may think they are. However, the God who reveals Himself in His creation, in His Word and in His Son Jesus Christ IS sovereign!! He reigns over His entire creation, including mankind, the entire human race. Few people today grasp the vital importance of believing this truth in order to live with comfort and peace in this world, where we are surrounded by what appears to be utter chaos! Things happen every day that are beyond OUR control, but NOTHING happens that is beyond HIS control!! Knowing the sovereign God, the only true God, is a privilege, because it is in knowing Him that we find comfort for our souls every day, no matter what our circumstances. Through faith in Jesus, we know our God is with us and that He is at work in all the details of our lives. In times when we grow weary and feel weak, the answer is always the same: “wait for the LORD!” Know Him, trust Him and believe He IS at work. He IS “the everlasting God!”
