Today we will be looking at the sovereignty of God. This sweet doctrine has personally carried our family through trials and tragedy. We praise the One who is in control, and take great comfort in knowing that the One who is sovereign is also revealed as all good, all wise, all powerful, and most worthy in His Word! I pray that the Lord would cause the truth of this doctrine to be planted deep into our hearts today, and that we would join together to praise the sovereign Lord of the universe! May our hearts be in awe of the Apostle Paul's words in Colossians 1:16: For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-all things were created through him and for him.
