20. The Sovereignty of God (Romans 9:6-33)

I was shocked to notice that I had never used the word “sovereign” in a sermon title before. Shocked because the word means so much to me and my daily walk with the Lord.Sovereignty is God’s absolute authority over and management of humankind and the universe. It combines His ability with His right to rule. He alone is God. We are not. His absolute control limits our control. His absolute freedom limits our freedom. Here's how God described Himself in the Book ofIsaiah :

Isaiah 45:5 I am the Lord, I have no peer,
there is no God but me.
I arm you for battle, even though you do not recognize me.
45:6 I do this so people will recognize from east to west
that there is no God but me;
I am the Lord, I have no peer.
