- God’s Sovereignty over the Nations God governs in the affairs of His children, of the ungodly, and of nations. God raises up nations and they have responsibilities to Him. In governing in the affairs of men, God brings about a preparation of His people, revelation of His power and person, and consummation of His purpose. An understanding of God’s sovereignty will produce a great confidence in us.
