God is Great, God is Good: A Devotion on God’s Providence

img_1139“The LORD has established His throne in the heavens, And His sovereignty rules over all” (Psalm 103:19).

God is great. God is good.

And that single, unshakable iron-clad truth is a soft and perfumed pillow on which we may rest our weary heads in the fiercest storms of life.
