King of Kings

Lord God of Israel, your throne is above the winged creatures. You created the heavens and the earth, and you alone rule the kingdoms of this world. ~ 2 Kings 19:15 (CEV)

You alone are holy, and all nations will come and worship you, because you have shown that you judge with fairness.” ~ Revelation 15:4b (CEV)

Since God is the only true ruler, and eventually the world will figure this out, it would be wise to live in his service starting now!
Almighty God, you are the one and only totally unique ruler. And while I know that it would make sense to start serving you and you alone, it is so easy to get caught up in the politics of the moment and to expect that the eternal future of the world rests with whomever claims power. This creates anxiety in me because I am really unhappy with the people who have been given leadership responsibility. Help me to Chill out and trust in you, the King of Kings, and the power and authority which uniquely flow from you. I am going to talk about the hope I have in you. Amen.
