The Sovereignty of God by Arthur Pink, (1886-1952)
“Our God is in the heavens; He does whatever He pleases!” Psalm 115:3
“Whatever the LORD pleases, He does–in heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps!” Psalm 135:6
The Sovereignty of God may be defined as the exercise of His supremacy. Being infinitely elevated above the highest creature, He is the Most High, Lord of Heaven and earth. Subject to none, influenced by none, He is absolutely independent. God does as He pleases, only as He pleases, always as He pleases. None can thwart Him–none can hinder Him.
God’s sovereignty is not the sovereignty of a tyrannical Despot, but the exercised pleasure of One who is infinitely wise and good! Because God is infinitely wise, He cannot err. Because He is infinitely righteous, He will not do wrong. Here then is the preciousness of this truth. The mere fact itself that God’s will is irresistible and irreversible fills me with fear–but once I realize that God wills only that which is good, my heart is made to rejoice.
God’s purpose cannot fail. God’s plans cannot miscarry. God’s will must be done.
A “god” whose will is resisted, whose designs are frustrated, whose purpose is checkmated, possesses no title to Deity–and so far from being a fit object of worship, merits nothing but contempt!
“All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as He pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back His hand or say to Him: What have You done?” Daniel 4:35
Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith... Heb 12:1-2
Be Ready Always...
to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
