The sword of the Spirit which is the word of God, Ephesians 6:17.
Jesus – In the beginning was the word, the word was with God and the word was God Himself, John 1:1.
2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
In Proverbs 3:5 we are admonished not to lean on our own understanding. So…
Whether I like it or not, whether I agree with it or not does not matter. God knows what He is talking about. I believe it or I do not. If I believe God and want to love Him, I obey Him. If I do not obey Him, I do not love Him. John 14:15 . I do believe in grace, this is not stated in order to refute grace or condemn anyone but to point to the Truth and the Way. Even Paul struggled with obedience saying he did the things he did not want to and did not do the things he did as well as who will rescue me from this body of death? Thank God, He will. (My paraphrase of parts of Romans 7.)
Scriptures are paraphrased from memory except for 2 Timothy 3:16
Following are some scripture references regarding God’s sovereignty. I encourage further study.
Isaiah Chapter 24, 27, and 46:11
John 14:6, 26 (who is our teacher?)
Nehemiah 1:1 (Nehemiah calls himself and the people God’s servants)
The whole of God’s story demonstrates his sovereignty.
