You are my King, so reign over me

"...You are my King, so reign over me..."

Jesus Christ is my King...but He is a good King. His rule is born of His holiness - His perfection. He rules in perfect love, meaning He does not force me to follow Him. This King loves me right where I am...but loves me enough to not leave me there. It was that kind of love - that righteous, kingly, perfect love - that led me to repentance and set me on the road to freedom. I proudly and boldly proclaim His rule and reign in my life. I submit to His royal majesty and invite Him to reign over me. It is in His reign that I have discovered peace and trust and freedom that was simply not to be found when I lived in the era of self-rule.
As you go about your day today, allow the Lord to show you areas of your life that need to be submitted to the rule and reign of His love.
The LORD shall reign for ever, [even] thy God,
O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the LORD.
Psalm 146:10 KJV
