Don't worry, there is a king!

Daniel is one of my favorite books to read. It's rich with the sovereign rule of God on every page as Daniel and his friends live in a foreign land. In chapter 4 Daniel tells the king,

"Seven times will pass by for you until you acknowledge that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes.”

After the test and repentance of the king he says this,

At the end of that time, I, Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyes toward heaven, and my sanity was restored. Then I praised the Most High; I honored and glorified him who lives forever.
His dominion is an eternal dominion;
    his kingdom endures from generation to generation.
 All the peoples of the earth
    are regarded as nothing.
He does as he pleases
    with the powers of heaven
    and the peoples of the earth.
No one can hold back his hand
    or say to him: “What have you done?”

Do you know there is a sovereign, a king ruling the affairs of earth? Do you know this is not out of control? Do you know he puts in office whoever he wishes?

There is a king ruling, he is the sovereign, will you take your fears to him and rest in his kind love for you? Regardless of who rules our country, any country, there is still only one king,

The Lord of heaven, YAHWEH, Jehovah, the God of the bible. He alone is God, he alone rules.

There is no other!
