my King, and my God

 

Psalm 5:2Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.

 

The Psalmist, King David faced many powerful enemies. He had enemies in other countries and enemies within his own country, Israel. While he was the king of Israel, “God” was David’s “King”. The same is true in our day, our “God”, the “King of kings, and Lord of lords” (I Timothy 6:15), has authority and power to rule in the affairs of man, including government. The “King of kings, and Lord of lords” providentially works in the affairs of man, sometimes overtly and sometimes in ways that we “cannot behold him” (Job 23:9) as He works. Like David, let us pray to our “King” and our “God”, honoring Him as our “King of kings, and Lord of lords” and asking that He will providentially rule in matters of government and in our daily lives.
