"Lord, the God of our ancestors,
are you not the God who is in heaven?
You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations.
Power and might are in your hand,
and no one can withstand you."
"The greatness of a man's power is the measure of his surrender."
~ William Booth ~
"There is no such thing as a great man of God,
only weak, pitiful, faithless men of a
great and merciful God."
~ Paul David Washer ~
"God is in charge of His universe. That He desires to use our prayers to accomplish His will is breathtaking. Without our assurances of God's sovereignty, our prayers would be weak. How could we count on a God who isn't sovereign to offer us help in time of need? Our great strength in prayer, then, is not dependent so much on us as it is dependent on our God who, because of His sovereignty, is able to answer our prayers." ~ Nick Harrison ~
"Prayer is not overcoming God's reluctance.
It is laying hold of His willingness."
~ Martin Luther ~
"Sin is cosmic treason. Sin is treason against a perfectly pure Sovereign. It is an act of supreme ingratitude toward the One to whom we owe everything, to the One who has given us life itself. Have you ever considered the deeper implications of the slightest sin, of the most minute peccadillo? What are we
saying to our Creator when we disobey Him at the slightest point? We are saying no to the righteousness of God. We are saying, "God, Your law is not good. My judgement is better than Yours. Your authority does not apply to me. I am above and beyond Your jurisdiction. I have the right to do what I want to do, not what You command me to do." ~ R. C. Sproul ~
"When you go through a trial, the sovereignty of God is the pillow upon which you lay your head." ~ C. H. Spurgeon ~
"In the absence of justice, what is sovereignty but organized robbery."
~ Augustine of Hippo ~
"That which should distinguish the suffering of believers from unbelievers is the confidence that our suffering is under the control of an all-power and all-loving God. Our suffering has meaning and purpose in God's eternal plan, and He brings or allows to come into our lives only that which is for His glory and our good."
~ Jerry Bridges ~
"God removes the sin of the one who makes humble confession,
and thereby the devil loses the sovereignty
he has gained over the human heart."
~ Saint Bernard ~
"Behind Calvary's cross
is the throne of Heaven."
~ James Stewart ~
"Divine sovereignty is not the sovereignty of a tyrannical despot, but the exercised pleasure of one who is infinitely wise and good! Because God is infinitely wise, He cannot err, and because He is infinitely righteous, He will not do wrong. Here then is the preciousness of this truth. The mere fact itself that God's will is irresistible and irreversible fills me with fear, but once I realize that God wills only that which is good, my heart is made to rejoice." ~ Arthur W.Pink ~
"With God all things are possible."
~ Matthew 19:26 ~
