If God Is Sovereign, Do I Make a Difference?

Many of our longtime readers understand that we here at FSMandFSWO write about Apologetics, Biblical/Christian Worldview, and the Sovereignty of the Triune God more than any other subjects. Why? Simply put if you do not know what you believe (Faith) you can not defend (Apologetics) what you believe.

I have said this many times if they are not sovereign over all the universe, why are you worshipping Him? The God we Worship must be the one who rules and controls. He not only rules over all things, but His control is over all things also. This is a critical understanding for True Believers, many people rule over large amounts of things, for example, the Chinese dictator Xi Jinping rules a large country but demonstrations and folks trying to sneak out of China prove he is not in total control. Xi Jinping expects folks to bow down to him, but we know only God who does in fact have total control (is sovereign in more than name only) over all things is worthy to be praised.
