God's Resume

Sunday's sermon shared a glimpse of what God's resume might look like.

  •  He existed before anything else.
  • He created all things.
  • He sustains all things.
  • He is above all things.
  • He knows all things.
  • He can do whatever He pleases.
  • He orchestrates all things.
  •  He rules over all things.
  • He is in control of all things.
He controls the choices of world leaders
He controls the course of human events
He controls calamity
He controls our circumstance
Nothing will enter your life that God does not either decree or permit. And this God, who sustains every atom of this universe, who raises up nations and brings them down, who remains un-thwarted in the accomplishing of all His purposes…this King over all loves you! He wants you to seek Him, to rely on Him, to wait for Him, to walk with Him.

He is Sovereign.  "To say God is sovereign is to say that He is unrivaled in majesty, unlimited in power and knowledge, and unaffected by anything outside Himself. He is outside of time and completely free to do whatever He wills to do anywhere, at any time, in every single detail without interference. He reigns, period. That is what it means to say God is sovereign.
