The Sovereignty of God I

(All Things Work Together)




  1. Ecclesiastes 8:3-4
    1. The word of a king changes the natural order.
    2. The sovereign King does [anything, everything, all things] He pleases even if it defies the natural order of things.  This is what is meant by the phrase “whatsoever pleaseth him”.  (verse 3)
    3. For example, God elevates the life of Joseph through and in spite of many negative and perilous circumstances and situations.
    4. The word of God is the final authority not situations or circumstances.


  1.          I.            You become highly favored when the sovereign God is with you.
    1. Hebrews 13:5 KJV, AMP
      1. Envy, covetousness, and jealousy will keep you naturally bound and limits the sovereign King’s ability to favor you.
      2. You will never see the supernatural possessing the moral disposition and impulses of envy, covetousness and jealousy.
      3. I Corinthians 3:3 AMP
    2. St. Luke 1:26-28 [Emphasis verses 28, 37]
      1. Highly favored means God is with you which translates to anything, everything, and all things are possible.
      2. The power of the Highest trumps the natural order of pregnancy.
      3. Obstacles are only temporary when God is with you.
      4. Delay is only stages in time where your faith is being perfected to handle the mountains and obstacles that surface in life.
    3. Highly favored means all things are possible when you believe the Word of the sovereign King.
      1. Genesis 39:1-2
      2. Genesis 39:21
      3. St. Mark 9:23-24
      4. St. Matthew 17:19-20
      5. St. Matthew 19:26
      6. Romans 8:28
