The sovereign power of God controls the rein of life and his love is constantly manifested in the entire universe, especially among his people. The Power of his love constrains our hearts to recognize his sovereign will and causes our minds to reflect back to the time of God’s blessing our lives with a humble, pride and ecstatic personality.
