Is God Really In Control?

January 10, 2016 Speaker: Ken Ramey Series: Our God Reigns

Topic: Sovereignty of God Passage: Daniel 1:1–1:2

Title: OUR GOD REIGNS - Serving the King of Heaven in a World of Pawns

Theme: Daniel’s life and ministry were ordained by God to encourage His people during the Babylonian exile by assuring them that He was still in control. Through the stories and visions of Daniel, God revealed His sovereign plans for world history and the coming of the Messiah through whom He would fulfill His promises to the nation of Israel which provided them with comfort and confidence while sojourning in a foreign land. Kings and kingdoms on earth will come and go ultimately serving to advance the eternal purposes of the Most High God who has established His throne in heaven. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom and all those who honor and serve Him will reign with Him forever. While we wait for that glorious day to come, we can trust that God’s sovereignty is reigning over all things, even when it seems like our world of our lives are spinning out of control.
