“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose!” Romans 8:28
There is no attribute of God more comforting to His children than that of God’s sovereignty. Under the most adverse circumstances, in the most severe troubles, they believe . . .
that Sovereignty has ordained their afflictions,
because that Sovereignty overrules them, and
that Sovereignty will sanctify them all.
There is nothing for which the children of God ought more earnestly to contend, than . . .
the doctrine of their Master ruling over all creation,
the kingship of God over all the works of His own hand,
the throne of God, and His right to reign upon that throne.

“To be God and sovereign are inseparable!” (Stephen Charnock)
“Sovereignty characterizes the whole being of God.
He is sovereign in all His attributes!” (Arthur Pink)
“God has sovereign right to dispose of us as He pleases.
We ought to acquiesce in all that God does with us and to us.” (William Carey)
