Yet you, GOD, are sovereign still, always and ever sovereign. Psalm 102:12 (MSG)
As a child, I remember coming to the realization that my tantrums and emotional protests had no effect on my parents. In fact, they really only served to harden my parents resolve while wearing me out entirely. I stopped wasting my energy and decided to just roll with it. The funny thing was, the less I protested the more my parents seemed to trust and respect me.
I see shades of myself in David's song this morning. He starts the song throwing an emotional tantrum but then stops short as he realizes and respects his eternal Father's sovereignty.
