the circumference of His sovereignty

Can you control the universe?
Can you control the seasons?
Can you control the morning dew on the growing grass, or the evening tide of the oceans?
Can you control the bird's singing, the lion roaring, the bee buzzing?
Well, no worries... GOD can!

How about this...
Can you control your relationships?
Can you control your security?
Can you control your peace?
Can you completely control these things?
Well, no worries... GOD can!

What's that you are saying?
YOU want to command the outcome of your love life?
YOU want to regulate your family's future?
YOU want to dominate the actions and opinions of people?
YOU want to control your own relationships?

What's that you are doing?
YOU want to rule and manage your success?
YOU want to dictate your income and property?
YOU want to insure your safekeeping?
YOU want to control your own security?

What's that you are endorsing?
YOU want to always be correct?
YOU want to validate every feeling and emotion?
YOU want to receive every wish and desire?
YOU want to control your own peace?

But can you?
Can you really control all these things?
Have you been trying to control all these things?
If so, how's that working out for you?
Are you... ARE YOU?... in full control?

Can you control all health?
Can you control all wealth?
Can you control all time, space, matter?
Can you control the thoughts and hearts of men?
Can you control all things to work together for good?
Can you control life?
Can you control death?
Can you control the outcome of all eternity?
Well, no worries... GOD can!

You see, GOD is unlimited in power!
GOD is unrivaled in majesty!
GOD is not thwarted by anything outside Himself!
GOD is in complete control of every circumstance and will fulfill His purpose and benefit His kingdom!

So, what can YOU control?
YOU can control your obedience to GOD's proven law.
YOU can control your acceptance of GOD's grace.
YOU can control your agreement with GOD's Word.
YOU can control your allegiance to GOD's will and only WAY... JESUS!

YOU can control your choice to follow this good, faithful, trustworthy, and loving King of kings.
A King inclined to listen to His own.
A King who wishes to bless His beloved.
A King who longs to give, and serve, and share, and embrace YOU intimately.
A King who wisely oversees every relationship, every security, every minute of our entire existence down to the most microscopic detail...
In order to do good... HIS GOOD!!!

He is the Way.
He is the Truth.
He is the Life.
So, won't you make Him YOUR LIFE?

Seek Him first.
Seek Him only.
Seek Him and trust the full circumference of His sovereignty this very second.

He has your best interest at heart.
He promises to never leave or forsake you.
He freely offers true salvation from all sin, evil, fear, pain, loneliness, heartbreak, sickness, famine, despair.
Do you believe Him?
Do you live like you believe Him?

Friends, YOU cannot control every creature, every event, every circumstance.
YOU cannot determine the moments of mankind.
YOU cannot juggle the happenings of past, present, and future or control eternal righteousness, holiness, goodness, peace, love.
No, this is not what YOU can control.

But, no worries... GOD can!!!

The LORD Almighty has sworn, “Surely, as I have planned, so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will stand. (Isaiah 14:24)

Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you. (Psalm 9:10)

O Sovereign LORD, you are God! Your words are trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servant. (2 Samuel 7:28)

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)

Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal. (Isaiah 26:4)

Blessed be the holy name of JESUS forever and ever!
His mercies are new every morning, so this is the day to rejoice and be glad in Him!
Hallelujah and all praise to the sovereign King of kings!
