God Is Sovereign

"But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever He hath pleased." (Psalm 115:3)

Imagine being surrounded by a large invisible net. Imagine that everywhere you go – school, your house, your friend's house – you are surrounded by this net. The net is there to stop everything from touching you. If someone throws a volleyball at you during P.E. class, it would just bounce off of nothing. If someone throws their carrots at you in the lunch room, the carrots won't touch you. Nothing can get past the net!

One of God's gifts to us is His sovereignty. God's sovereignty is much like an invisible net. Situations in life – both good and bad – cannot touch you without getting God's permission.

The word sovereignty is a big word with a simple meaning. Sovereign means "chief" or "highest in power." To say that God is sovereign means that God is the One in charge of everything – it means nothing can get past God's control. A car accident can't harm you without God's permission. Surprises and blessings can't touch you without God's permission. God is in control of everything!

God's sovereignty is like a net that surrounds and protects you.
