God is not limited to using nations or the elements of nature to accomplish His will. He uses people as well to bring about His plans. We are quick to explain occurrences in our everyday life as coincidence or natural phenomena, However God is strategic in how He operates. He works behind the scene and He arranges and re-arranges things in our lives in order for it to line up with His plan and purpose. God is Sovereign. He does what He wants to do, when He wants to do it and how He wants to do it. He uses nations and governments to bring His will to pass. In the book of Esther, we see how God used Esther to save her people from Haman's genocidal behavior to eliminate all the Jews. God orchestrated every event leading up to Esther's elevation as queen, then gave her favor with the king. Our challenge is to recognize His sovereignty. To acknowledge that He is God Almighty, the only true God. The creator of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen. In His sovereignty, He has chosen to enter into a covenant relationship with us, His creation. God has shown His love to us by creating us in His image and by sacrificing His only Son on the cross so that we could be saved and receive eternal life. Our sovereign God is in control. Nothing happens unless He allows and nothing escapes Him. God has in the pass and will continue to use nature for His purpose. He takes a bad situation, turns it around and work it for the good of His people. The scripture is filled with many examples of God responding to the prayers of men and women. We see how in the beginning, in the book of Genesis chapter one, God spoke creation into existence and He continues to speak His will today and has given us the authority to speak as He speaks. How awesome is that. For that we bow in worship to Him and Him alone. We reverence Him, we adore Him and we glorify His Holy name. For only He alone is worthy. He is our Sovereign God.
