Divine sovereignty



Divine sovereignty

“Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own?” 
Matthew 20:15

Suggested Further Reading: 
Luke 19:11-27

There is no attribute of God more comforting to his children than the doctrine of divine sovereignty. 
Under the most adverse circumstances, in the most severe troubles, they believe that sovereignty has ordained their afflictions, that sovereignty overrules them, and that sovereignty will sanctify them all.

 There is nothing for which the children of God should more earnestly contend than the dominion of their Master over all creation—the Kingship of God over all the works of his own hands—the throne of God, and his right to sit upon that throne. 

On the other hand, there is no doctrine more hated by unbelievers, no truth which they have kicked about so much, 
as the great, stupendous, but yet most certain doctrine of the sovereignty of the infinite Jehovah.

 Men will allow God to be everywhere except on his throne. They will allow him to be in his workshop to fashion worlds and to make stars. They will allow him to be in his treasury to dispense his alms and bestow his bounties. 

They will allow him to sustain the earth and bear up its pillars, or light the lamps of heaven, or rule the waves of the ever-moving ocean; but when God ascends his throne, his creatures then gnash their teeth; and when we proclaim an enthroned God, and his right to do as he wills with his own, to dispose of his creatures as he thinks well, without consulting them in the matter, then it is that we are ridiculed, and then it is that men turn a deaf ear to us, for God on his throne is not the God they love. 

They love him anywhere better than they do when he sits with his sceptre in his hand and his crown upon his head.

For meditation:

 Do you have to think twice before addressing Jesus as Lord? Judas Iscariot could never bring himself to do it—the other disciples could say “Lord” (Matthew 26:22); Judas could only say “Rabbi/Master/Teacher” (Matthew 26:25,49).

you can be accepted in to his kingdom.
