“Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.”Psalm 147:5
“He who once bore our sins and carried our sorrows is seated upon a throne of glory, and exercises all power in heaven and on earth. Thrones, principalities, and powers bow before Him. … From the tallest archangel to the [lowliest] ant or fly, all depend on Him for their being [and] their preservation. He directs the sparrows where to build their nests and to find their food.
“He overrules the rise and fall of nations and bends, with an invincible energy and unerring wisdom, all events—so that while many intend nothing less, in the outcome their designs all concur and coincide with the accomplishment of His holy will. He restrains with a mighty hand the … powers of darkness; and Satan with all his hosts cannot exert their malice a hair’s-breadth beyond the limits of His permission.
“This is He who is the Head and Husband of His believing people. How happy are they whom it is His good pleasure to bless! … How should we praise Him that He has visited us!”
“Praise ye then His glorious name,/ Publish His exalted fame!/ Still His worth your praise exceeds,/ Excellent are all His deeds.” (William Cowper, 1731-1800)
