“The Lord reigns; our Lord who so loved us, as to wash us from our sins in His own blood. (Revelation 1:5)
The Lamb once upon the cross is now the Lamb upon the throne. (Revelation 5:6, 13)
With infinite wisdom, love, and power on our side we may rejoice. The sea is rough and stormy, but the pilot is infallible.
See Psalm 46, 76, and 93.”
