The Lord Reigns
"Do you not fear Me?" says the Lord.
"Will you not tremble at My presence,
who have placed the sand
as the bound of the sea,
by a perpetual decree,
that it cannot pass beyond it?
And though its waves toss to and fro,
yet they cannot prevail;
Though they roar,
yet they cannot pass over it." Jeremiah 5:22
Exaltation comes neither from the east
nor from the west nor from the south.
But God is the Judge:
He puts down one, and exalts another.
He changes the times and the seasons;
He removes kings and raises up kings;
He gives wisdom to the wise and
knowledge to those who have understanding.
You will hear of wars and rumors of wars.
See that you are not troubled.
If God is for us, who can be against us?
Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin?
And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father's will.
The very hairs of your head are numbered.
Do not fear therefore...
You are of more value than many sparrows.
