It can be easy to be discouraged about this world as we see evil perpetrated by leadership around the world, including in our own country. We should remember that
he who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them (the kings of the earth and the rulers) in derision (Psalm 2:4).
The Lord is in control and his wrath and fury will come upon them (Psalm 2:5) and they will be dashed to pieces (Psalm 2:9), unless they repent and turn to him. God is in control.
