God Rules All
Psalm 97:1 (KJB) The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.
It is no secret that God reigns over all things, including the earth and the heavens. His position is above all things. His authority is higher than any other, including the created, creatures, and angels.
Yes, God reigns above all things, and all are subject unto Him.
The created (people) are born into this world with their own will, and, unless it is purposely bent (elected) to be towards God, each person continues to be ruled by self motives and desires. Angels and creatures are a different circumstance. They are not able to choose to follow God, for they do not have a soul or any ability to reason or make choices, as does humanity.
God does allow humanity to rule himself, and to make his personal choices in all matters in this life. God will not horse collar any soul into savoring and serving Him. If God were able to coerce any person, then we would all be nothing more than human puppets for God as we sojourn in this world.
Yes, God has authority and a will for every soul. A spiritually softened person must apply God’s rule and reign in his heart and life obediently, choosing to follow in God’s divine direction and desires.
