The Lord reigns for ever and ever. —Exodus 15:18

Jesus is our King. Herod tried to kill Jesus. The Jewish people rejected Jesus as does much of the world today. But, Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords. He has all authority on earth and heaven! (Matthew 28:18-20). “If I were hungry I would not tell you, for the world is mine, and all that is in it” (Psalm 50:12).

The world is a mess because of the devil who is a liar and murderer from the beginning (John 8:44). Those who have not trusted the Lord Jesus need to “come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will” (II Timothy 2:26). This is why the world is a mess whether people realize it or not— it is because they are not thinking right, they have been trapped by the devil, they are his captive and he is driving them to do his will instead of God’s will. This is true of every person who has not trusted the Lord Jesus!

Until we trust Jesus as Lord and Savior we live for ourselves. When we truly trust Jesus we seek to please Him by doing His will and no longer live for ourselves, but also seek the good of others. May we do so today!

Dear Father, thank You for saving me out of the devil’s trap and helping me to think rightly. I am grateful that I am no longer imprisoned by him to do his will, but am now free to serve You. May I do so in the authority of Jesus my King!
