names of God Sovereignty

The Most High God part 3

u10174139[1]Two of the hardest doctrines to reconcile are the Sovereignty of God and human responsibility, and because these are so difficult to balance in our thinking, it is all too easy to err when applying them to life.

If we are feeling guilty of some action we have taken then we can err on the side of God’s sovereignty, saying in effect, ‘God is to blame.’ If we want to take matters into our own hands rather than trust God, then we lean toward our desire to take action. It is, however, vitally important to be balanced with regards to both of these doctrinal realities.

Faith is the practice of the heart that proves that God is sovereign, he can be trusted, and he overrules in the affairs of men. “I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performs all things for me.” (Psalm 9:2)

God’s name ‘Most High God’ appears more in the book of Daniel than any other does; in Daniel, we get a historical picture of how God rules over the affairs of men, even great kings like Nebuchadnezzar. “…they fed him with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven; till he knew that the Most High God ruled in the kingdom of men, and that he appointed over it whomsoever he will.”

The Christian should always be conscious that God is sovereign over all, and thereby exercise the necessary faith to please God. The fruit of faith is never inaction; even waiting on God becomes a choice of the will to please Him. The Christian is one who learns to live by faith in God Most High, which produces good works.

About GI

I write a blog called Godly Increase to help people understand that life is not at all what it seems. The masses live as though there is no God, but apart from Him nothing else could exist. God not only created but also sustains our world, so that all what seems to be governed by the laws of physics are themselves controlled by the divine person who wrote a book to explain the meaning of life. The book is the Bible and it is the only source of truth on the planet. Within God's book secondary causes are articulated, but God is the primary cause of all things. Some may plant, others may water, but it is God that causes the growth.
