God’s Sovereignty Mirrored by God’s Image

The Sovereignty of God--His rule--is mirrored in micro by those created in the image of God with the mandate to govern.

God’s internal Sovereignty is His free will to rule. God’s image stamped upon man is a micro-mirror of God’s Sovereignty. We [f]reely [r]ule our [dom]ain, just as He [F]reely [R]ules His [DOM]ain. Our freedom comes with a caveat: We have a responsibility to use our freedom—our [f]ree [r]ule of our [dom]ain--to advance God’s much greater FREEDOM—His [F]ree {R]ule of His [DOM]ain!

Will the real King of Israel please stand up?

2 Samuel 7:18–22 (NIV): [18]“Then King David went in and sat before the Lord, and he said: ‘Who am I, Sovereign Lord, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far? [19] And as if this were not enough in your sight, Sovereign Lord, you have also spoken about the future of the house of your servant—and this decree, Sovereign Lord, is for a mere human! [20] What more can David say to you? For you know your servant, Sovereign Lord. [21] For the sake of your word and according to your will, you have done this great thing and made it known to your servant. [22] How great you are, Sovereign Lord!’”
