HE EVER WORKS HIS PLEASURE
BY: RAY PRINZING
“So shall My word be that goeth forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please.”
The Psalmist often gave expression to his thoughts on the omnipotence and the sovereignty of God, as when he said,
HE IS ABOVE ALL. He does rule over all. He raises up kings and abases them according to His own plan and purpose. We believe this, and rejoice in it, for this is OUR God. But, there is also a fact to be reckoned with, for in all the exercise of His will and purpose there is not one particle of perverseness or selfishness involved. He performs His will because He knows it is in the best interest of all His creation, for He alone has the knowledge and wisdom necessary to make the right judgment. His nature is LOVE, and love motivates all His actions – toward us, as an elect firstfruit to become a new creation, and towards all the world, which shall be delivered from the bondage of sin and shame in due time.
“God is love,”
