Let’s take a few minutes to apply some of the things we’ve learned about the sovereignty of God this week.
1. Read Romans 9:14-18. Now, choose to purposefully show mercy or compassion to at least one person in your life today. Imagine what it would be like to not even have to think about doing that! Our God is merciful and compassionate. Always! He doesn’t even have to think about it.
2. View the video/song at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnqzPt3NTRI. How does God need to change your heart? Read Romans 9:19-21 again. Contemplate some of the reasons why the Potter made you the way He did. Thank Him for molding and making you just the way He did (for honorable purposes).
3. Read Isaiah 55:6-13. Spend the next few minutes seeking God through prayer; call upon His wonderful and mighty name! Write down at least one attribute of God’s sovereignty for each letter of the alphabet (from A to Z, and good luck with X).
4. Define the word “pardons” from Psalm 103:3a in the New American Standard Bible (NASB). Since God “pardons all your iniquities,” make a list of everything that might include for you personally (and then fall to your knees in absolute gratefulness for each and every item). Read Psalm 103:8, 11-12 too. Marvel at the incredible grace and mercy of our sovereign God!
5. Read Psalm 103:19 from the NASB. Draw a picture of what “His throne in the heavens” might look like. Imagine your joy when you see that throne (and His sovereignty ruling over all) someday in heaven. What a glorious day that will be!
