A little boy sat on my knee one day. We were playing as a team. The game was Dominos. The game was nearly over. We were playing to win. I saw an opportunity to make a play that would have sent our opponent to the barnyard. ALet=s do this,@ I said. ANo,@ said the little boy, AI wanna do what I wanna do!@ That is the same way we often treat God. We want our own way. The Bible says, AAll we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way . . . @ (Isaiah 53:6). We want to do our own thing. We will not bow and bend to the Sovereign Creator. When we say that God is Sovereign we mean that He is the Supreme Being of the universe. He has a will. He makes decisions and policies. He sets up principles. He makes the rules. It is God=s right alone to rule over the heavens and the earth. He is Lord. He is the Master. He has the right to be the Boss of everything and everyone. King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had to learn that lesson. In Daniel 4:34 Nebuchadnezzar learned to bless the Most high, and praise and honor Him Who lives forever, Whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and Whose kingdom is from generation to generation. AAll the inhabitants of the earth,@ said King Nebuchadnezzar, Aare as nothing; He does according to His will . . . No one can stop His hand or say to Him, >What are You doing?=@ God is a mighty King, but we like to be our own kings. We want to do our own thing, be our own boss. The day will come though when God will exercise His Lordship, take control of this earth, and put down the rebellion of men. AI have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow . . . @ (Isaiah 45:23). We have the choice of bowing down now, and recognize Him as Saviour and Lord or we can wait until that day when we will have to bow down. Then it will be too late to have life and heaven with Him. What choice do you make? ALook unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else@ (Isaiah 45:22).
