God is in control of world events, implementing his plans, fulfilling his purposes for all people.
Shout for joy, you to whom God has given his righteousness.
It is appropriate that those he makes upright
would praise him.
Worship Jehovah in every way you can think of.
What the Lord says is straight talk.
He has been faithful to preserve his Word for us
down through the ages.
In fact he is faithful in everything he does!
All God had to do was speak a word to bring forth creation –
the heavens, the galaxies, the deep places of the sea –
all were brought forth by the spoken word of God.
Every person on earth must recognize the authority of God
and respond to him appropriately,
awestruck before him, fearing his hatred for sin.
Jehovah crushes the plans of nations; he neutralized their schemes.
He is in control of world events, implementing his plans.
His purposes for all people will be fulfilled.
Deeply happy are those whose God is Jehovah,
those he chooses to belong to him.
