But who are you, O man, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?'” Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some potter for noble purposes and some for common use? Romans 9:20-21
I feel like today is one of those days where the question that I often hear Casey ask me”Is God sovereign or is God sovereign?” keeps repeating in my head. Yes… the question only provides one answer… God is sovereign… meaning he has supreme power and authority. So, I have my plans… and my desires, but ultimately I’ve committed and surrender my life to Him, which mean He has authority and the “final say” in my life. I have peace with this even though some may say this is crazy. I have seen God intervene in my life so many BLATANT times that I am more than okay with Him being sovereign in my life.
As for the scripture quoted above, I read this just about a week ago as I was going through Romans and it just struck a chord in me. Who am I to talk back to God… who am I to think I could do a better job than Him. I’m pretty sure He knows the purpose He has for my life and each situation I find myself in, and this gives me peace.
