“God’s power over all things”

 

Psalm 103:15-16Psalm 103:15-16
Spanish: Biblia Reina Valera - revisión de 1995 - RVR95

15 El hombre, como la hierba son sus días;i florece como la flor del campo, 16 que pasó el viento por ella, y pereció, y su lugar ya no la conocerá más.

is a magnificent hymn of praise, David praises God for His blessings and compassion as a loving and forgiving father for his children (vss. 1-18). He concludes with a universal call for praise (vss. 19-22), but he begins this call with a declaration of God’s sovereignty (vs. 19) for it is God’s sovereignty that gives Him the absolute freedom to do what He does in His blessings and showing compassion to frail and temporal humanity (vss. 15-16).

 

 

Have you ever thought about how the physical heavens literally rule over the earth? They can ruin us or bless us. Warm us or cool us. Burn us or freeze us. Make our crops productive or destroy them. We have learned that climate and atmospheric conditions affect not only our health, but psychological behavior.

 

 

And what are the heavens? They are the creation of God, but they also illustrate God’s sovereign majesty over our lives.

 

Scriptures such as Psalm 103:15-16Psalm 103:15-16

often relate God to the heavens not because He is so far removed from us as to space, but because in His sovereign majesty He is so high above us in power, nature, and sovereignty.

 

The sovereignty of God may be defined as the exercise of His supremacy, His infinite rule, His authority and power. Being infinitely elevated above the highest creature in authority, nature, and being, He is the Most High Lord of heaven and earth and all creation whether angels or the heavenly hosts.

 

Basically, God’s sovereignty means that He is the Supreme Ruler who immanently and personally rules over all the affairs of the universe—and this includes our personal lives both as individuals and as a local body of believers. God’s sovereignty is a place of rest for the child of God, as well as a cause of worship Psalm 48:1Psalm 48:1
