by A. W. Pink-
It has been well said that "true worship is based upon recognized
greatness, and greatness is superlatively seen in Sovereignty, and
at no other footstool will men really worship." In the presence of
the Divine King upon His throne even the seraphim 'veil their faces.'
Divine sovereignty is not the sovereignty of a tyrannical despot,
but the exercised pleasure of One who is infinitely wise and good!
Because God is infinitely wise He cannot err,
and because He is infinitely righteous He will not do wrong.
Here then is the preciousness of this truth.
The mere fact itself that God's will is irresistible and
irreversible fills me with fear, but once I realize that
God wills only that which is good.
My heart is made to rejoice.
Here then is the final answer to the question- What ought
to be our attitude toward the sovereignty of God?
The becoming attitude for us to take is that of godly fear,
implicit obedience, and unreserved resignation and submission.
But not only so: the recognition of the sovereignty of God,
and the realization that the Sovereign Himself is my Father,
ought to overwhelm the heart and cause me to bow before
Him in adoring worship. At all times I must say,
"Even so, Father, for so it seems good in Your sight."
