Many powerful men have ruled throughout time, but even the most powerful ruler is powerless before the true King and almighty Ruler of this world.  Not a single one of these men, or any other leader for that matter, would have taken power if God had not allowed them to do so (Romans 13:1-2).  Not to mention God created every inch of land these men claimed as their own (Genesis 1).

No matter who rules a piece of land, the true king of this world is the Lord.  As Isaiah 33:22 so eloquently expresses, “For the Lord is our judge,
 the Lord is our lawgiver,
 the Lord is our king;
 He will save us.”  Let’s love Him, obey Him, serve Him, and show loyalty to Him above all others.
