“For all things are Your servants.”

Today’s devotion comes from Psalm 119:81-96.  Here is a link to this Scripture – https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+119&version=NASB

I quote only the following verses.

“89 Forever, O Lord,
Your word is settled in heaven.
90 Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations;
You established the earth, and it stands.
91 They stand this day according to Your ordinances,
For all things are Your servants.
92 If Your law had not been my delight,
Then I would have perished in my affliction.
93 I will never forget Your precepts,
For by them You have revived me.
94 I am Yours, save me;
For I have sought Your precepts.
95 The wicked wait for me to destroy me;
I shall diligently consider Your testimonies.
96 I have seen a limit to all perfection;
Your commandment is exceedingly broad.”  Psalm 119:89-96.

God is sovereign and rules over all.  All things serve God.

“89 Forever, O Lord,
Your word is settled in heaven.
90 Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations;
You established the earth, and it stands.
91 They stand this day according to Your ordinances,
For all things are Your servants.”  Verses 89-91.

Other doctrine teaches a salvation based on man’s alleged free-will.

But Reformed Doctrine, recognizing God’s sovereignty over all things, teaches a salvation based on God’s sovereignty.

“The Lord has established His throne in the heavens,
And His sovereignty rules over all.”  Psalm 103:19.

“For He says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.”  So then it does not depend on the man who wills or the man who runs, but on God who has mercy.”  Romans 7:15-16.
