And that's God's sovereignty simplified.

Spurgeon put it this way:

"Opposition to divine sovereignty is essentially atheism. Men have no objection to a god who is really no god, a god who shall be the subject of caprice, who shall be a servile follower of their will, who shall be under their control. But a God who speaks and it is done, who commands and it stands fast, a God who does as he will among the armies of heaven and among the inhabitants of this lower world, such a God as this they cannot endure. And yet, it is not essential to the very being of God that he should be absolute and supreme? Certainly to the scriptural conception of God, sovereignty is an absolute necessity."

I love Spurgeon and I want to join the band of men and women who proclaim with unequivocal and unashamed confidence that God is the sovereign King. Anyone who reads the Bible for very long cannot deny it.

Praise God His dominion and His sovereignty.
