God is Always Sovereign

Hos 2:9 Therefore I will take back my grain in its time, and my wine in its season, and I will take away my wool and my flax, which were to cover her nakedness.

Since all that Israel had ultimately came from God and belonged to God, then God had sovereign right to take it all back. All too often we forget that all we have came from God. We tend to whine and complain when we suffer some loss, but we forget it was a gift from God to have ever had any good things at all. God intends for us to be blessed, but if we deny Him our gratitude then we have no grounds whatsoever to complain when He reclaims what is His.
