The Most High God is so wise and powerful that He can ordain that His creatures have the freedom to make decisions and even disobey His revealed will, and yet He can accomplish His divine purposes on this earth. “Man’s will is free because God is sovereign,” said A.W. Tozer, who was not a confessed Calvinist. “A God less than sovereign could not bestow moral freedom upon His creatures. He would be afraid to do so.”14 Submitting to God’s sovereign will didn’t make Nebuchadnezzar any less of a man; in fact, this commitment transformed him from living like a beast to living like a man!
