Re:Verse reading–Acts 17:10-12, 16-34 (day four)
The word is ‘sovereign’. God is sovereign over all. Look at verse 26…God made every nation and people, He determined their appointed times, and He even determined the boundaries of their nation. There are many today who believe they are in control…that they control the destiny of their nation. Dictators that believe they can conquer and control other nations and add to their kingdom. It is God who is in control…He is sovereign…He has complete control and authority over the nations. Regardless of what one despot thinks or another, apart from God’s plan, their plans to change the world map will not succeed.
God is also sovereign in our lives. We might outwardly acknowledge that He is in control of our lives, but how much do we live that belief? Stop and reflect on what ‘complete control and authority’ means in your life. Does your life demonstrate submission to the sovereignty of God?
