God is sovereign

"...The God of Scripture is no make-believe monarch, no mere imaginary sovereign, but King of kings, and Lord of lords. 'I know that Thou canst do everything, and that no thought of Thine can be hindered.' (Job 42:2, margin), or, as another translator renders it, 'no purpose of Thine can be frustrated.' All that He has designed He does. All that He has decreed He performs. 'But our God is in the heavens: He hath done whatsoever He hath pleased' (Psa. 115:3); and why has He? Because 'there is no wisdom, nor understanding, nor counsel against the Lord' (Prov. 21:30)."
