King of the World

King of the WorldHave you heard Natalie Grant’s song King of the World? It tells about how easy it is to forget God is the kind of the world. The song tells about our tendency to put God in a box. Have you done that lately? Listen and be convicted. May God rule every inch of our lives!

The lyrics of King of the World

I tried to fit you in the walls inside my mind
I try to keep you safely in between the lines
I try to put you in the box that I’ve designed
I try to pull you down so we are eye to eye

When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the king of the world
How could I make you so small
When you’re the one who holds it all
When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world

Just a whisper of your voice can tame the seas
So who am I to try to take the lead
Still I run ahead and think I’m strong enough
When you’re the one who made me from the dust

When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the king of the world
How could I make you so small
When you’re the one who holds it all
When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world

Ohhhh, you set it all in motion
Every single moment
You brought it all to be
And you’re holding on to me

When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the king of the world
How could I make you so small
When you’re the one who holds it all
When did I forget you’ve always been the king of the world
You will always be the king of the world

Posts on trying to put God in a box

If you’re looking for some further inspiration, check out these posts: Leviticus & Why God Does not Fit in a Box and Making room for God. Blessedly, God is bigger and more awesome than we can ever imagine. Life is not about us and our (lack of) capabilities. It’s about God’s love and grace towards us. He holds us and the whole world together. Hence, we can rest in him. No matter what.

Let us pray

Dear God,
Forgive us for forgetting you
and pushing you away from us.
Be our King, Lord and Savior.
Be praised forever and ever!
In Jesus’ name,
Amen

Q4U: Do you have a tendency to put God in a box?
