“The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, Like the rivers of water, He turns it wherever He wishes.” Proverbs 21:1
Throughout history there have been a variety of kings. Some were just, generous and considerate of their population. Others were famous for torturing and slaughtering their own people. Kings – and all figures of authority – are working under God’s watchful eye. Even if they don’t know it, He is sovereign, even over them; they are subject to Him.
There are kings…then there is the King of kings. He is Jesus, the “blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords.” (1st Timothy 6:15) Jesus may not be acknowledged now as such, but one day, just the mention of the name of the King of kings will cause every knee to bow, “of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:10,1
Let’s bow our knees today before the King of kings, and worship Him now as Lord of lords!
Prayer: Lord, we worship You as the King over every king and praise You for Your sovereignty. We humbly bow before your authority. Amen!
