About Sovereign Love Series

There are two things we need to know and believe about God: His eternal power and His divine nature. Is God truly who He says He is: Sovereign Love?

Devotional

Job 1:8 AMPC
And the Lord said to Satan, Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who [reverently] fears God and abstains from and shuns evil [because it is wrong]? 

Job’s friends live on…forever finding imagined whys in the story—“It was Job’s pride.” But God Himself had said there was no flaw in the man.

We will have our answers, even if we have to make them up. 

Job’s friends are ever lustfully unsatisfied with mysteries. God’s final answer to the matter was, “I AM (and that means sovereign). That’s all I have to say.”

Read the book backward. Read it forward. It still comes out that God simply said I AM WHO I AM.
