King of the World

Another great song that reminds us just how small we are and how big God is. This morning I was reading in a book by Beth Moore called "Praying God's Word." (It is a really great book that focuses on breaking free from specific strongholds). There was a quote by Neil Anderson that caught my attention: 
"Satan's ultimate lie is that you are capable of being the god of your own life, and his ultimate bondage is getting you to live as though his lie is truth."
I paused and asked myself- am I god of my life or is the Lord God of my life? There are many areas in my life that I try to do myself....this leads to anxiety and frustration because things never turn out exactly how I want. What I need to remember is that God is King of the world, and He is also King over my own life, including all areas of my life, big and small.
Who is the god of your life? I pray that listening to the song above can help you answer that question. Have you forgotten who God is and who you are compared to God? I know I often forget and that is why His Word is so important to remind us every day who we are, who God is, and what God has done for us. 
I'm thankful God used this song and quote to refocus my attention on the King of the World.
