Daniel 4:34-37 (NIV)
34 At the end of that time, I, Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyes toward heaven, and my sanity was restored. Then I praised the Most High; I honored and glorified him who lives forever. His dominion is an eternal dominion; his kingdom endures from generation to generation.
35 All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as he pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back his hand or say to him: “What have you done?”
36 At the same time that my sanity was restored, my honor and splendor were returned to me for the glory of my kingdom. My advisers and nobles sought me out, and I was restored to my throne and became even greater than before.
37 Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and exalt and glorify the King of heaven, because everything he does is right and all his ways are just. And those who walk in pride he is able to humble.

Psalms 20:1-5 (NIV)
1 May the Lord answer you when you are in distress;
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
2 May He send you help from the sanctuary
and grant you support
from Zion.
3 May He remember all your sacrifices
and accept your burnt offerings.
4 May He give you the desire of your heart
and make all your plans succeed.
5 May we shout for joy over your victory
and lift up our banners in the name of our God.
May the Lord grant all your requests.

If “the name of the God of Jacob” would “set you securely on high”,  if you would trust Him to “send you help from the sanctuary, and support you from Zion” (Psalm 20:1-2), then you must know Him as El Elyon, the Most High. For if God is not sovereign, if He is not in control, if all things are not under His dominion , then He is not the Most High, and you and I are either in the hands of fate (whatever that is), in the hands of man, or in the hands of the devil.

34 At the end of that time, I, Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyes toward heaven, and my sanity was restored. Then I praised the Most High; I honored and glorified him who lives forever. His dominion is an eternal dominion; his kingdom endures from generation to generation.

Isaiah 14:24,27 (NASB)
24 The Lord of hosts has sworn saying, “Surely, just as I have intended so it has happened, and just as I have planned so it will stand, … … 27 For the Lord of hosts has planned, and who can frustrate it? And as for His stretched-out hand, who can turn it back?” 

Isaiah 46:9-11 (NASB)
9 “Remember the former things long past, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is no one like Me,
10 Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’;
11 Calling a bird of prey from the east, The man of My purpose from a far country. Truly I have spoken; truly I will bring it to pass. I have planned it, surely I will do it.

Daniel 2:20-23 (NASB)
20 Daniel said, “Let the name of God be blessed forever and ever, For wisdom and power belong to Him.
21 “It is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings; He gives wisdom to wise men And knowledge to men of understanding.
22 “It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, And the light dwells with Him.
23 “To You, O God of my fathers, I give thanks and praise, For You have given me wisdom and power; Even now You have made known to me what we requested of You, For You have made known to us the king’s matter.”

What difference does it make in your life to realize that God is Sovereign, that He is Ruler over all, and that nothing can happen without the ultimate sanction or permission of God?

Deuteronomy 32:39 (NASB)
39 ‘See now that I, I am He, And there is no god besides Me; It is I who put to death and give life. I have wounded and it is I who heal, And there is no one who can deliver from My hand.

1 Samuel 1:5-6 (NASB)
5 but to Hannah he would give a double portion, for he loved Hannah, but the Lord had closed her womb. 6 Her rival, however, would provoke her bitterly to irritate her, because the Lord had closed her womb.

1 Samuel 2:6-10 (NASB)
6 “The Lord kills and makes alive; He brings down to Sheol and raises up.
7 “The Lord makes poor and rich; He brings low, He also exalts.
8 “He raises the poor from the dust,
He lifts the needy from the ash heap
To make them sit with nobles,
And inherit a seat of honor;
For the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s,
And He set the world on them.
9 “He keeps the feet of His godly ones,
But the wicked ones are silenced in darkness;
For not by might shall a man prevail.
10 “Those who contend with the Lord will be shattered;
Against them He will thunder in the heavens,
The Lord will judge the ends of the earth;
And He will give strength to His king,
And will exalt the horn of His anointed.”

Isaiah 45:5-7 (NASB)
5 “I am the Lord, and there is no other;
Besides Me there is no God.
I will gird you, though you have not known Me;
6 That men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun
That there is no one besides Me. I am the Lord, and there is no other,
7 The One forming light and creating darkness,
Causing well-being and creating calamity; I am the Lord who does all these.

John 19:10-11 (NASB)
10 So Pilate *said to Him, “You do not speak to me?
Do You not know that I have authority to release You,
and I have authority to crucify You?”
11 Jesus answered,
“You would have no authority over Me,
unless it had been given you from above;
for this reason he who delivered Me to you has the greater sin.”

Ephesians 5:18-20 (NASB)
18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit,
19 speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord;
20 always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father;

Even when we are wronged by others, we can still give thanks. Although we have been given a free will, still God so rules and overrules that no person, angel, demon, or devil, nor any circumstance of life, can thwart His plan.
El Elyon rules supremely over all. And because He does, you can understand how all things “work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Rom. 8:28
In everything you can “give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thess. 5:18

Romans 8:28 (NASB) – And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

1 Thessalonians 5:17-18 (NASB) pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

 

I will cry to God Most High, To God who accomplishes all things for me. – Psalms 57:2 (NASB) –
