But God is my King from long ago; he brings salvation on the earth.

Psalm 74:12

The LORD is King for ever and ever; the nations will perish from his land.

Psalm 10:16

Your procession, God, has come into view, the procession of my God and King into the sanctuary.

Psalm 68:24

Many people go gaga over things that have to do with the Royal Family. Others steer clear of those “big events”. I was working overnight when Prince Harry married Meghan. I watched the whole thing. I was fascinated by all of the goings on. I don’t know if it was because I grew up watching the princes grow up or if it was because his bride was from the United States, but I think it was because I remember watching parts of the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana. So much has been said about the Queen of England lately, due to her age and health issues. The Queen of England is an extremely intriguing lady. She lives in a palace, with several servants. The world fawns over her. It may surprise you to learn that she actually has no power. Parliament makes all of the political decisions for England. Isn’t that a picture of how we treat God, the King of the Universe. We build all these beautiful churches and cathedrals, but we don’t allow Him to have any power over our lives.

There are many forms and spellings for this name of God, but ultimately it means God, my King or The LORD, the King. This is found most frequently in reference to Jesus. Several verses refer to His authority and dominion:

He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.

Daniel 7:14

Many more verses refer to Him as the King of kings and Lord of lords:

In the sight of God, who gives life to everything, and of Christ Jesus, who while testifying before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, I charge you   to keep this command without spot or blame until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ,  which God will bring about in his own time—God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords,

1 Timothy 6:13-15

Jesus often talked about His Kingdom:

Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.”

John 18:36

When we see “famous people” we typically show them respect. We are excited, we get all dressed up if we know we will be seeing them. But do we do the same thing for the King of kings? He is deserving of all authority and power. He demonstrated perfect obedience and deserves our obedience.

But there is one more side of this that you need to remember, sister. The Bible says many times that we have the right to become children of God:

Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God

John 1:12

If God is the King, and if you are a child of God, then you my friend, are a princess. Yes, YOU! It doesn’t matter if that’s how you feel or not, you are a Princess. I think the biggest thing about this that I struggle with is that as a Princess I deserve respect, too! I need to respect myself and demand that others respect me. I do not have to allow anyone to treat me poorly. That is truly a difficult thing to swallow. I am a Princess, because My Father is the King of kings.
