The greatest minds of history have wrestled with the issue of the sovereignty of God versus the free will of humankind. Someday in eternity we may discover how the track of God’s sovereignty and the track of our responsibility finally come together. But the way we should look at this is so simple we sometimes miss it: let God take care of His sovereignty, and let us take care of our responsibility. God’s sovereignty explains things that humans cannot possibly fathom.

The sovereignty of God in our lives, from our perspective, is like looking at a weaving from the wrong side. We see all the various threads and knots and strands sticking out. We see it from the back side because we do not have the perspective that God has. But someday in eternity, God will take that patchwork we have looked at and haven’t understood, and He will turn it around. We will see the beautiful tapestry that has been woven out of our lives. We can spend all our lives trying to figure out why God does this and why God does that. Sometimes we just have to fall back on the fact that God is sovereign and in control. We can rest secure in that truth.
