The Sovereignty of God is the exercise of his supremacy, His infinite rule, his authority, and power. It means that God is the supreme ruler who immanently and personally rules over all the affairs of the universe, which includes our personal lives. We believe that God upholds all things, from galaxies to subatomic particles, from the forces of nature to the movements of nations, and from the open plans of politicians to the secret acts of solitary persons — all in accord with his eternal purpose. He directs all things according to his royal counsel which means that every single event that happens is in some sense predestined by God (Ephesians 1:11) for a particular purpose.
