Still King

This morning the Lord spoke a simple word to me. “I am still King.” The fact that He is King means that He is in control—He is sovereign. He is Loving and faithful. All circumstances are under His feet. He was and is and will always be the King of glory!

Then He reminded me….

When Christ was born into anonymous poverty, He was still King.

When Christ lived among a people who did not receive Him, He was still King.

When Christ was tested by satan in the wilderness, He was still King.

When His own people wanted to stone Him to death, He was still King.

When Christ had no place to lay His head, He was still King.

When Christ washed the feet of His followers, He was still King.

When Christ was abandoned by His followers in Gethsemane, He was still King.

When Christ was arrested and taken away to be tortured, He was still King.

When Christ was nailed to a cross, He was still King.

When Christ forgave me from the cross, He was still King.

When Christ was in the darkness of the tomb He was still King.

When Christ came forth from the tomb He was still King.

When Christ ascended to Heaven to the right hand of the Father He was and is still King.

When I am in darkness and confusion, Christ is still King.

When I am rejected, Christ is still King.

When I fail and fall into sin, Christ is still King.

When I doubt God, Christ is still King.

When I am afraid, Christ is still King.

When I am wounded and abandoned Christ is still King.

When I am uncertain, Christ is still King.

When I am misunderstood, Christ is still King.

When I lie down and breathe my last, Christ will still be King.

Fill in the places in your own life where, Christ is still King.

When __________________________, Christ is still King.

Lift up your heads, O gates,

And be lifted up, O ancient doors,

That the King of glory may come in!

Who is the King of glory?

The Lord strong and mighty,

The Lord mighty in battle.

Selah. Psalms 24:7-8
