He fashions their hearts individually

“The Lord looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men. From the place of His dwelling He looks On all the inhabitants of the earth; He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works.” – Psa. 33:13-15

God is sovereign over all people of every nation.

Do Not Be Like the Mule

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye. Do not be like the horse or like the mule, Which have no understanding, Which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, Else they will not come near (their master).” – God (Psa. 32:8-9)

God’s personal engagement. Far too often I am the stubborn mule.

You Who Still the Noise

You who still the noise of the seas, The noise of their waves, And the tumult of the peoples.” -Psa. 65:7

Peace is not the absence of war, but the presence of God.

God Is In Control

“I am the LORD your God, Who divided the sea whose waves roared— The LORD of hosts is His name.” – God (via Isaiah 51:15)

God Is In Control.

God is the wave-maker.

God is the sea-divider.

God quiets the sea when it’s billows roar (literal translation).

The might of Jehovah is seen in the storm-waves of the sea (Ellicott).


Why, oh why, would you ever depend on anyone else?

God Is In Control.
