The Sovereignty of Man
The Question of God’s Will
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
— Hebrews 11:3
God formed man out of the dirt of the ground, and He created woman from the flesh of man’s side. We might not appreciate how personal that is. God merely speaks and worlds flash into being. God doesn’t have to form things using physical hands that mold and shape. In His immense authority over all that is, He simply speaks and the universe comes into existence. Yet, the Lord took time to form human beings, fashioning us in His image and breathing into us the breath of life.
The Bible teaches us that God is all-powerful and there is nothing He can’t do. His arm is not too short to save us. Psalm 147:4 tells us God knows the number of the stars, and He even calls them by name. Think of giants like VY Canis Majoris, a red supergiant with a radius 1400 times larger than the radius of our Sun. Think of the multitude of stars, the billions upon billions of them stretching deep into the universe. God can do anything He likes. Yet, when He made humankind in His image, He did something special with us. He created beings who, like God Himself, have the ability to think, imagine and create.
