God was sovereign over the lives of the patriarchs. The patriarchs were Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. God promised Abraham a son, and his descendants would be as many as the stars of the sky and the grains of sand. God kept His promise by giving Abraham a son, Issac. Then Issac had Jacob and Esau. Jacob had twelve sons who became the twelve tribes of Israel. It has been about 5,000 years since Abraham, and the Jews are still alive, just as God promised.

I know God is sovereign in my life because he kept me from dying in my mom’s belly. I know God has a plan for my life.
