We're living in a culture that does what it wants. And why is this so? Because we live as if there is no King. While living in a King-less society, we must remain King-ed.
My goal in laying out this book is to lead you from ground zero of God’s sovereignty out to the whole world of God’s ultimate sovereign control.
Sovereignty is a reality that few wish to tackle because of its ramification in our lives is enormous.
I don’t want to live my life resisting what offends me or the things I don’t like. Rather I want to live receiving all of life as from God.
I am seeing life like I rest in the palm of God’s hand and that because I am His, all things in my life are Jesus touching, guiding, and leading me.
How many of my disappointments are just God’s loving hand positioning me into His purpose? Could God be that sovereign? Does sovereignty reach that far?
The living water of the Spirit is always "flowing, bubbling within him to eternal life!" It isn't subject to the conditions of your natural life.
When I choose to live my life with thanks to God, I make a choice for Life, which liberates me from the Tree of Knowledge.
Prayer and sovereignty are uniquely entwined while appearing to be seemingly contradictory. So if God is sovereign, what is the purpose of prayer?
Despots may scheme and finagle but it's God Himself who places them in leadership. No man can steal what only God Himself endows.
If we define our reality by our current circumstances, we are set up to be offended. Faith trusts that God is good, regardless of my circumstances.
The source of most of our stress, if not all of it, is our opinions and judgments, but once I looked at God, He rushed in to extinguish my opinionated fire.
