Sovereignty of God
Sovereignty Of God is his power and right of dominion over his creatures, to dispose and determine them as seemeth him good. This attribute is evidently demonstrated in the systems of creation, providence, and grace; and may be considered as absolute, universal, and everlasting (Da 4:35; Eph 1:11). See Cole, On the Sovereignty of God; Charnock, On the Dominion of God in his Works, 1, 690; Edwards, Sermons, ser. 4; Meth. Quar. Rev. Jan. 1855. SEE POWER OF GOD; SEE THEODICY.
