God Is Sovereign in All of the Affairs of Men

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

Nebuchadnezzar was an earthly monarch who appeared to be a sovereign; but there is a Sovereign in heaven Who has all things under His control. Nebuchadnezzar would learn the great truth that,

the most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whoever He will (Daniel 4:17, 25).

He does according to His will … among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stop His hand … (Daniel 4:35).

God’s sovereignty over all of the affairs of men – even those who appear to be “sovereign” – is taught throughout the Scriptures.

The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: He turns it wherever He will (Proverbs 21:1).

In fact, it is God Who is the “… Great King over all the earth” (Psalm 47:2).

Regardless of what His creatures may assert, the God of Scripture is the all-wise, all-powerful Sovereign of His Own universe. He is not a god who, somehow, has lost control of his creation.

Rest in that.
