Words Of Wisdom
The “sovereignty of God” is the biblical teaching that God possesses all power and is the ruler of all things (Ps. 135:6; Dan.
4:34–35). God rules and works according to His eternal purpose, even through events that seem to contradict or oppose His
rule. Scripture testifies clearly to God’s rule over: (1) His creation (Rom. 8:20–21; Col. 1:15–17); (2) Human history (Prov. 16:9, 33;
Acts 17:26). This is why Jeremiah can say that our great God made everything and that He gives it “to whom it seemed
proper to me” (Jer 27:5). Thus, no ma[er how bleak everything around us looks (e.g., coronavirus), we can rest in the truth that
God is in control and knows exactly what He is doing!
