Stand in God’s Supremacy
Our God is in heaven; He does whatever pleases him. (Psalm 115:3)
We can be confident in prayer because God is supreme. Because He is supreme, then no problem that we pray about can out-muscle our God. No spiritual power that comes against us can defeat Him. His supremacy means that He is sovereign and strong, ruling over all, and more powerful than anything.
I look at Psalm 115:3 as the ultimate statement on God’s supremacy. In the previous verse the neighboring idol-worshiping nations asked Israel, “Where is your God?” They were saying, “We can see our wood and stone gods sitting on the shelves in our homes. But we can’t see Israel’s God.” The answer? “Our God is in heaven; He does whatever pleases Him.” God is in heaven, so you can’t contain Him; and He does whatever He wants, so you can’t control Him.
This is the God we seek in prayer today—alive, loose, and unconstrained. And when we pray according to His sovereign will, His supremacy steps into our defeated, captive situations to restore and free us.
Pray the Scriptures:
Declare the supremacy of God in your life today. Answer God as Job did, “I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.” Stand confident in God and believe that His plan will be done.
“When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them. (Psalm 8:3)”
