And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased. They that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.
Matthew 14:32 & 33

“GOD OVER ALL” OR NO GOD AT ALL!
If there is but one little germ somewhere in this vast universe which is not under God’s dominion and control, then two things are true: (1) God is not “God over all” as the Scriptures so plainly and universally declare Him to be; (2) My life, health, and well-being is merely a matter of chance. I cannot honestly thank God for life and health, nor can He honestly ask for nor receive thanks from me.
If there is but one demon somewhere out there in this vast universe which is not under God’s sovereign dominion and control, then my soul is in deep trouble; and if I am ever finally saved at all, it will be merely a matter of chance. I have no power against demons, and if just one of them is active outside the sphere of God’s dominion and control, then the “Sure mercies of David” are not so sure after all.
The only sure hope for any real sinner is an absolutely sovereign Lord and Savior. There, and there only can a poor, weak, sinful soul confidently rest in peace. The great apostle to the Gentiles said, “I know WHOM I have believed, and am persuaded that HE is able to KEEP that which I have committed unto HIM against that day” (II Tim. 1:12). The great God and Savior of His people can and shall keep His saints because HE is indeed “GOD OVER ALL.” Believe on HIM and thou SHALT be saved!
CHRIST IS ALL
And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all (Col. 3:1-11).
“Truly, ‘Christ is All!’ And if Christ is ours, we have all in him. All who get the Son of God get everything with the Son! ‘He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?’ (Rom. 8:32). Our God has given us a word for that in the Bible. The word is ‘Grace’!”
