The Sovereign LORD is my strength.

Habakkuk 3:19

Habakkuk refers to God most aptly as SOVEREIGN LORD: the One who is in supreme control. Isaiah, speaking prophetically, wrote, the Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me…… to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour (61:1-2). This came some 700 years later, angels proclaiming at Christ’s birth, ‘Peace to men on whom his favour rests.’ (Lk.2:14) Years later, when Jesus brought immediate calm to the raging storm, the disciples asked in awe, ‘Who can this be that even the wind and the sea obey him?’ (Mk.4:41) Who? The Sovereign Lord.
Then, as now, in total control. HE is our strength!
