Summary: A message concerning the Omnipotence of God.
GOD OF THE UNIVERSE
INTRO: In this day that we live in when everybody is in such a hurry, and trying to obtain as much for themselves as they can, we sometimes wonder if our God is really the God of all, and if everything really belongs to Him.
Today, we want to take a few minutes to look at our world as see if God is really the God of the Universe.

CONC: Even though we may deny that God owns all things and that He made
everything that we have today, and that we are dependent upon Him for every thing, He is still the God of the universe, and some day we will give account to Him for the way that we have managed His business here on earth.
