God’s Sovereignty

“All that [God] has made He has made for Himself, to set forth His
praise; the heavens themselves with all their splendid furniture exist
but to illustrate His glory; the earth and all that is in it, and all
that happens in it, to declare His majesty; the whole course of history
is but the theatre of His self-manifestation, and the events of every
individual life indicate His nature and perfections. Men may be unable
to understand the place which the incidents, as they unroll themselves
before their eyes, take in the developing plot of the great drama: they
may, nay, must, therefore stand astonished and confounded before this or
that which befalls them or befalls the world. Hence arise to them
problems — the problem of the petty, the problem of the inexplicable,
the problem of suffering, the problem of sin … But, in the infinite
wisdom of the Lord of all the earth, each event falls with exact
precision into its proper place in the unfolding of His eternal plan;
nothing, however small, however strange, occurs without His ordering, or
without its peculiar fitness for its place in the working out of His
purpose; and the end of all shall be the manifestation of His glory, and
the accumulation of His praise.”

– B.B. Warfield (1851-1921)taken from:/Predestination
