Tag: God’s sovereignty

“If the Bible and history have taught us anything, it’s that God is notoriously uncooperative at our attempts at controlling Him.

We want to contain Him, institutionalize Him, and systematize Him so that we can ultimately understand, predict, and control Him. So, when the Lord does something unexpected, when He complicates our life or our world, it’s a reminder that control is an illusion. We never had it, and we never will.

That awareness is a gift.”

"The fact that God gives us the freedom to make choices doesn't diminish His sovereignty or authority. God, in His sovereignty, didn't ordain which choices you would make, but rather ordained that you would be free to make them. Anyone who is not sovereign would be afraid to do this."
