“A true recognition of God’s sovereignty humbles as nothing else does or can humble, and brings the heart into lowly submission before God, causing us to relinquish our own self-will and making us delight in the perception and performance of the Divine will.” –A. W. Pink
“Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all” (1 Chron. 29:11-12, NIV).
Heavenly Father, please forgive us for dishonoring You with our ignorance of who You are and sinning against Your sovereignty . Please Father, grant us a God-centered definition of what it means that You are LORD. We beg You to deliver us from our irreverence and rebellion against Your sovereignty by gripping our hearts with a vision of You on Your throne. In Jesus name, amen.
