The Sovereignty Of God
By Mike Riley

Several years ago, I remember a religious sign that was erected with only two
words printed in bold black letters which read:
“Try God.”

It wasn’t too long before someone had scribbled below it this question:
“On what charge?”

If we think that’s funny, let’s consider the man in California a few years back,
who actually tried to sue God for a storm that had caused him to suffer
uninsured loss. The judge threw the case out of court saying the sheriff’s
office was unable to bring the defendant to court.

Similarly, many folks have tried to call God into question for one thing or
another. Many play the game of “Whys.” “Why did God make me like this?”
(Romans 9:20; cf. Isaiah 45:9). “Why do You show me iniquity, And cause
me to see trouble?” (Habakkuk 1:3). “Why would a good God allow good
folks to suffer at the hands of evil men?” (Job 24:1-17).

Like the California man, the maddening thing to these folks, is that they can’t
get God into the courtroom. The concept of the sovereignty of God, is a hard lesson for mankind to learn (Jeremiah 32:17; Jeremiah 32:26-27; cf. Genesis 18:14). God moves and acts on His own authority (Daniel 4:8-25).
He does what He pleases when He pleases, and He refuses to stoop to the
curiosity of mortal men (Hebrews 2:6; cf. Psalms 8:4; Job 7:17-21). He will
not explain nor apologize for His actions, and He will not be brought up on
our charges (Daniel 4:35; Romans 11:33-35).

Rest assured, God is still on the throne and is still working things out for our
good (Psalm 45:6-7; Hebrews 1:1-8; Romans 8:28), even if we don’t
understand all the brush strokes going onto the Canvas of life’s portrait.
Therefore, let us trust ourselves to a God who knows and understands the
whole picture (Psalm 37:3-5; Proverbs 3:5-6).
