    It is comfort to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. God's sovereignty reigns above all. He answeres to no one. God's authority, love, holyness, faithfullness, power to us who believe is no less today than the day he spoke the world into existance. It is comfort to know God is still on the throne. Thereisa right road
