The Sovereignty of God, verses.

RBC Pamphlet


The sovereignty of God is one of the major themes of the Word of God.  Sovereignty does not mean that God can do anything, for God cannot lie, cannot be tempted with evil, and cannot deny Himself, but does mean that God can do anything He desires.

One of the best statements of Godís sovereignty was given by a gentile king:

Dan 4:34 ∂ And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:

Dan 4:35  And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?

The following are a few of the many passages of Scripture which reveal the greatness of our sovereign God in His creation and His grace toward us:
