I am SO grateful that God is absolutely sovereign.
Considering my propensity to sin and inability to purge myself completely of the “lust of the flesh, lust of the eye, and the pride of life”, it’s reassuring, to say the least, that God ultimately controls all things.
My “free will” does not override His plans. While I am on that note, if my “free will” could override what God has already planned in eternity, who is really the God here? Apparently, He could not be God, since I was able to do something that He had no idea about. Discounting him being the Omnipotent One, as He bends to my will and the Omniscient One, as my decisions are a mystery to Him.
But that is not the case, He is still God and I am not.
