"The Lord has made everything for its purpose, 
even the wicked for the day of trouble."
Proverbs 16:4

  • belonging to or characteristic of a sovereign or sovereignty; royal.
  • having supreme rank, power, or authority.
  • supreme; preeminent; indisputable: a sovereign right.
  • greatest in degree; utmost or extreme.
  • being above all others in character, importance, excellence, etc.
(For once I didn't like Noah Webster's definition very well.  It wasn't definitive enough!  This one from dictionary.com seemed more accurate.)

I have nothing cute, astute, or profound to say about this verse.  And I can't say that I just love it, either.  I am thankful that it is here, because it explains some things--like why God allows the wicked to exist at all.  And it is another proof of God's sovereignty and a good test for us of simply believing Him and knowing that in the end it will be for our good ( Romans 8:28 ) and for His glory 
( Revelation 4:11 ).  God doesn't lie ( Numbers 23:19 ) and He doesn't fail, 
2 Timothy 2:13 ); therefore, I can believe Him.

Thankful that He's on my side!
