The Language of Sovereignty
Rom. 8:35 Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
The Language of Sovereignty (the Almighty God/ the Creator/ the Ancient of Days/The Everlasting Father) brings to us the rhetorical question; “Who Dat?”
You might ask, what is meant by “Who Dat”? This is New Orleans speak for “Who Shall”? or “Who Will”?, etc.
The God of Heaven by His own free will and according to His own pleasure in choosing us before the foundation of the world to be redeemed through the blood of His dear Son, the Lord Jesus Christ; sits in the heavenlies and asks this question:
WHO DAT GONNA OUTSMART GOD?
Romans 11:34 (KJV)
For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?
The Lord Jesus prayed this prayer:
John 17:1 ¶ Jesus spoke these things; and lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify Your Son, that the Son may glorify You,
John 17:2 even as You gave Him authority over all flesh, that to all whom You have given Him, He may give eternal life.
John 17:3 “This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
And we know that the Son always did the will of the Father, and the Father always answered the Son.
We who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ have been prayed for by the Son of God before He went to the cross and we are secure in His redemption;
Therefore we hear this question thunder with the all the authority of God,
WHO DAT GONNA SEPARATE YOU FROM THE LOVE OF CHRIST?
WHO DAT GONNA ACCUSE YOU? YOU HAVE BEEN REDEEMED
WHO DAT GONNA CONDEMN YOU? IT IS CHRIST THAT DIED AND NOT ONLY THAT HE IS RISEN AND AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD.
WHAT IS HE DOING FOR YOU AT THE RIGHT HAND? HE IS INTERCEEDING, BY MAKING SURE THAT WHAT HE PAID FOR AT THE CROSS BECOMES YOURS. YOUR COMPLETE FORGIVNESS!
We are not saved because we believe in a high moral belief system.
We are born again, born of the Spirit. It is because of His mercies that we are not consumed.
He has called you out of darkness, into His marvelous light. He has made us to be His children.
No matter what trials and tests we may be facing. No matter what situations in our own families that is causing stress in our lives. The language of the Sovereign King of Glory Who Dat King of Glory (Psalm 24) is :
WHO DAT FIGHT AGAINST HIS WILL? Romans 9:19
In other words, is there anyone on the earth who is stronger than your King to change His mind concerning you and your life?
Is there any man? Is there any power? Principality? Devil? Government? That can interfere, change or undo what God has already determined to do for you?
No, a thousand times No!
Jer. 29:11 ‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.
Let’s look to Him today in faith, in complete assurance that we know that no matter what happens, we have a God in heaven, Who fills us with His Spirit and His Word , Who delights to do His will in our life.
