โ€œFor the word of the Lord is ๐ฎ๐ฉ๐ซ๐ข๐ ๐ก๐ญ, and all his work is done in ๐Ÿ๐š๐ข๐ญ๐ก๐Ÿ๐ฎ๐ฅ๐ง๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ. He loves ๐ซ๐ข๐ ๐ก๐ญ๐ž๐—ผ๐ฎ๐ฌ and ๐ฃ๐ฎ๐ฌ๐ญ๐ข๐œ๐ž; the earth is full of the ๐ฌ๐ญ๐ž๐š๐๐Ÿ๐š๐ฌ๐ญ ๐ฅ๐—ผ๐ฏ๐ž of the Lord. By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and by the breath of his mouth all their host. He gathers the waters of the sea as a heap; he puts the deeps in storehouses.โ€

Today we get a reminder of the sovereign and holy character of God and His Word. He is upright, faithful, just, and full of steadfast love. Not only that, but He is all these things, He is Sovereign over ALL events and creation. Praise him!

๐”๐ฉ๐ซ๐ข๐ ๐ก๐ญ - He is holy and blameless
๐…๐š๐ข๐ญ๐ก๐Ÿ๐ฎ๐ฅ - He is faithful to accomplish the plan he has for us (psalm 138:8)
๐‰๐ฎ๐ฌ๐ญ - because He is holy and blameless, his faithful plans are completely justified
๐’๐ญ๐ž๐š๐๐Ÿ๐š๐ฌ๐ญ ๐ข๐ง ๐ฅ๐—ผ๐ฏ๐ž - praise Him that is love is steadfast and not temporary! As John MacArthur says, โ€œif we had the ability to lose our salvation, we would...โ€ it is only by his grace and love that He is forgiving as we continually mess up.

Verses 6-7
Simply put, amazing reminder that God is in complete sovereign control and because of the characteristics mentioned, we can have absolute confidence and assurance in His sovereign plan. Not only is He in control of the things we see, but the things we donโ€™t see too!

Praise God for his character and love and sovereignty of all things!
