Revelation 21:6a Then He said to me, "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end Colossians 1:16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities--all things have been created through Him and for Him
Sovereignty of God Romans 11:33 Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways! Jeremiah 32:17 `Ah Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You.
Job 1:6-12 6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them. 7 The LORD said to Satan, "From where do you come?" Then Satan answered the LORD and said, "From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it." 8 The LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, fearing God and turning away from evil.” 6 7 8 Sovereignty of God
9 9 Then Satan answered the LORD, "Does Job fear God for nothing? 10 "Have You not made a hedge about him and his house and all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land. 11 "But put forth Your hand now and touch all that he has; he will surely curse You to Your face." 12 Then the LORD said to Satan, "Behold, all that he has is in your power, only do not put forth your hand on him." So Satan departed from the presence of the LORD. Job 1:6- 12 10 11 12 Sovereignty of God

Does His being in “total control” bring you peace, frighten you, or give courage? Do you feel His control limits you or gives you freedom. When was a time you were aware of God’s sovereignty protecting or blessing you? Sovereignty of God
Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. How is this verse a testimony to the sovereignty of God? Sovereignty of God
