“The LORD has established His throne in the heavens, And His sovereignty rules over all.”

Today’s devotion comes from Acts 9:1-9.

“Now Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest, and asked for letters from him to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to the Way, both men and women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.  As he was traveling, it happened that he was approaching Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him;  and he fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”  And he said, “Who are You, Lord?”  And He said, “I am Jesus whom you are persecuting, but get up and enter the city, and it will be told you what you must do.”  The men who traveled with him stood speechless, hearing the voice but seeing no one.  Saul got up from the ground, and though his eyes were open, he could see nothing;  and leading him by the hand, they brought him into Damascus.  And he was three days without sight, and neither ate nor drank.”  Acts 9:1-9.

Other doctrine believes in man’s alleged free-will.

But, Reformed Doctrine believes in God’s will.

In this awesome display, God shows that His will rules over all.  Even though Saul was intent on persecuting Christians, God stopped Paul in his tracks. converted him, and completely changed his actions.

“19 The LORD has established His throne in the heavens,
And His sovereignty rules over all.
20 Bless the LORD, you His angels,
Mighty in strength, who perform His word,
Obeying the voice of His word!
21 Bless the LORD, all you His hosts,
You who serve Him, doing His will.
22 Bless the LORD, all you works of His,
In all places of His dominion;
Bless the Lord, O my soul!”  Psalm 103:19-22.
