Sovereignty of God

A prayer from Tozer ~ Who wouldst not fear Thee, O Lord God of Hosts, most high and most terrible ? For Thou art Lord alone. Thou hast made Heaven and the heaven of heavens, the earth and all that are therein, and in Thy hand is every living thing. Thou sittest King upon the flood; yea, Thou sittest King forever. Thou art a great King over all the earth. Thou art clothed with strength; honor and majesty are before Thee. Amen ! ~
God’s sovereignty is the attribute by which He rules His creation, and to be sovereign God must be all-knowing, all-powerful, and absolutely free.
We serve a God that needs to be TOTALLY all that, for if not, He could not be who He is. And we would not even be here, if it was not the all- knowing and all-powerful Jehovah !
It requires that He be absolutely free to do what ever He wills at any time to carry out His eternal purpose in every single detail without interference and if less than free , He would not be sovereign.
With our finite minds, it is hard to fully grasp that idea. We are so limited and He is so huge. Not in size but just the complexity of Jehovah.
That causes us to want to search Him deeply and bow humbly before such an all-powerful being and worship Him in a deeper way.
