March 19, 2011 (sovereignty of God)

sovereignty of God

“No plan of God’s can be thwarted;
when He acts, no one can reverse it;
no one can hold back His hand
or bring Him to account for His actions.
God does as He pleases, only as He pleases,
and works out every event to bring about
the accomplishment of His will.
Such a bare unqualified statement
of the sovereignty of God would terrify us
if that were all we knew about God.
But God is not only sovereign,
He is perfect in love
and infinite in wisdom.”
- Jerry Bridges

“Lord, I am willing
to receive what You give,
to lack what You withhold,
to relinquish what You take,
to suffer what You inflict,
to be what You require.”
- Author Unknown
