But you, O God are my king from of old; you bring salvation upon the earth. It was you who split open the sea by your power; you broke the heads of the monster in the waters; It was you who crushed the heads of Leviathan and gave him as food to the creatures of the desert. It was you who opened up springs and streams ; you dried up the ever flowing rivers. The day is yours, and yours also the night; you established the sun and moon. It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter.
In spite of suffering and trials in our lives, whether brought on by our own decisions, or by the mistakes and sins of others, God is still sovereign. Therein lies our hope.
