“King of the World” by Natalie Grant is a great song and I hope that you get to listen to it soon.  It made me realize that sometimes I forget that God is the King of the World:

“I tried to fit you in the walls inside my mind
I tried to keep you safely in between the lines
I try to put you in the box that I’ve designed
I try to pull you down so we are eye to eye

When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world?

I try to take life back right out of the hands of the king of the world
How could I make you so small
When you’re the one who holds it all
When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world

Just a whisper of your voice can tame the seas
So who am I to try to take the lead
Still I run ahead and think I’m strong enough
When you’re the one who made me from the dust

When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the king of the world
How could I make you so small
When you’re the one who holds it all
When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world

Ohhhh, you set it all in motion
Every single moment
You brought it all to be
And you’re holding on to me

When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the king of the world
How could I make you so small
When you’re the one who holds it all
When did I forget you’ve always been the king of the world
You will always be the king of the world”

Psalm 57, a Psalm of the sons of Korah, is an expression of spirit of great gratitude and humility to an awesome, mighty God.  They express a longing for God.

“Clap your hands, all you people. Shout to God with joy.
The Lord Most High is wonderful. He is the great King over all the earth!
He defeated nations for us and put them under our control.
He chose the land we would inherit. We are the children of Jacob, whom he loved.
God has risen with a shout of joy; the Lord has risen as the trumpets sounded.
Sing praises to God. Sing praises.
God is King of all the earth, so sing a song of praise to him. God is King over the nations.
God sits on his holy throne. The leaders of the nations meet with the people of the God of Abraham, because the leaders of the earth belong to God. He is supreme.”

Who do you say is the King of Your Life?

When Jesus rules your life, your circumstances won’t always be perfect but they will be right.

Don’t forget He is King of the World!
