God’s sovereign control is complete, not partial. It governs every aspect of nature, every aspect of history, and every aspect of personal life.
Was A.W. Tozer wrong on sovereignty? Today’s question arrives from a listener named Josh. “Pastor John, hello! I am a Christian of only a few years, and am learning more about Calvinism and election in my studies. My question is: To what degree are our actions and daily walk with God predestined? If I recall correctly, A.W. Tozer believed providence was like a cruise ship. The ship’s final destination is settled and certain (that’s providence). But on the open water, what we each do on the ship is open to our own free volition. So, Pastor John, how much of our daily life is sovereignly directed by God?”
