Nature of Gods Sovereignty - God is Sovereign
By Paul George

1 Chronicles 29:11

The Sovereignty of God, what do we mean by this expression? The Sovereignty of God refers to the supremacy of God, the kingship of God, the Godhood God. To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that God is God. To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that He is the Most High, doing according to His will in heaven, and on earth. To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that He is the Almighty, the Possessor of all power in heaven and earth, so that none can defeat His counsels, frustrate His purpose, or resist His will (Psalm 115:3). To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that He is "The Governor among the nations" (Psalm 22:28), setting up kingdoms, overthrowing empires, and determining the course of dynasties as pleases Him. To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that He is the "King of kings, and Lord of lords" (1 Timothy 6:15).

The Sovereignty of the God of Scripture is absolute, irresistible, and infinite. When we say that God is Sovereign we affirm His right to govern the universe that He has made for His own glory, just as He pleases. We affirm that His right is the right of the Potter over the clay, that He may mold that clay into whatsoever form He chooses. We affirm that He is under no rule or law outside of His own will and nature, that He is a law unto Himself that He is under no obligation to give an account of His actions to any. He is Sovereign in all His attributes, the exercise of His power and His will. Pharaoh dared to hinder Israel from going forth to worship Jehovah in the wilderness, what happened? God exercised His power, His people were delivered and their cruel taskmasters slain. When Israel entered the land of Canaan, the city of Jericho barred their progress, what happened? Israel did not draw a bow nor strike a blow; the Lord stretched forth His hand and the walls fell down flat. However, the miracle was never repeated, no other city fell as Jericho fell; every other city had to be captured by the sword.
