Psalm 103:19 ” The Lord has established His throne in heaven, and His kingdom rules over all.”

Ever since mankind got kicked out of the garden, we’ve been battling God’s sovereignty with our lust for self-rule. We struggle to accept God’s reign over our life…bristling with the desire for self-sufficiency and autonomy. But if you really think about it, autonomy is totally delusional! Oh yes, we have free will…but the minuscule power we exert is so tiny to God’s mighty sovereign providence that stands over and above any of our our actions. We are designed to live in worshipful dependence with God and in community with others…and anything other than that is not in God’s Will. Sure, there’s many times we won’t understand what God is doing, and it’s no sin to want to understand. But real trust and resting hope can only come by accepting His Will in our lives… knowing that His Will is perfect. Or as Psalm 33:20-21 tells us, “We wait in hope for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy Name.”
