“Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him.”

Psalms 115:3 NIV


“All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as he pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back his hand or say to him: “What have you done?””

Daniel 4:35 NIV


“It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s mercy.”

Romans 9:16 NIV


This week Pastor Drew is going to preach about God’s sovereignty. Whatever God wants to do He does it.  I don’t know about you but, I am so very thankful that our Father is the supreme authority.  I’ve been going through the Bible this year in chronological order and am finishing up the Old Testament this week. Friends, let me tell you how much I know that God’s sovereignty is so true. Countless times His people do the exact opposite of what He wants and still His plan is carried out. He even uses the enemy to carry out our future. I’m so thankful that God is in control not me.  I took some time to read over the lyrics that we are going to sing this week and these are what stood out to me.


You’ve been faithful through every storm

You’ll be faithful forevermore

You have done great things

And I know You will do it again

For Your promise is “Yes and amen”

You will do great things

God, You do great things


‘Cause my sin was deep

Your grace was deeper

My shame was wide

Your arms were wider, yeah

My guilt was great

Your love was greater still, oh


Can’t go back to the beginning

Can’t control what tomorrow will bring

But I know here in the middle

Is the place where You promise to be

I’m not enough unless You come

Will You meet me here again

‘Cause all I want is all You are

Will You meet me here again


Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty

Who was and is and is to come

With all creation I sing praise to the King of kings

You are my everything and I will adore You



Spend some time before Sunday praying the lyrics God is going to use this week to minister to us. What great hope we have to know that nothing we can do will change the plans that God has for us.


“How great you are, Sovereign Lord! There is no one like you, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears.”

2 Samuel 7:22 NIV


“For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”

Ephesians 3:14-21 NIV
