God’s Sovereignty

Here are some verses you don’t hear about very often. However, they can be strangely comforting.

Exodus 4:11
Then the LORD said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the LORD?

John MacArthur mentions the one above in a sermon entitled Why Does Evil Dominate the World?

1 Samuel 2:7
The LORD makes poor and makes rich; he brings low and he exalts.

1 Chronicles 29:11-12
11 Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all. 12 Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all.

Job 9:12
Behold, he snatches away; who can turn him back? Who will say to him, ‘What are you doing?’

Daniel 4:35
all the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing, and he does according to his will among the host of heaven and among the inhabitants of the earth; and none can stay his hand or say to him, “What have you done?”

Lamentations 3:38
Is it not from the mouth of the Most High that good and bad come?

—————

Romans 11:33-36
33 Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!
34 “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?”
35 “Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?”
36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.

    I like the passages you selected, to reflect the Lord’s sovereignty, particularly 1 Samuel 2:7 and Job 9:12. I was going to include Job in my blog but I ran out of room 🙂  Besides to do justice I need a more indepth approach to the book of Job

  2. 2 Scripture Zealot

    Thank you. I suppose I cheated since I’ve had those two memorized for a long time.
