SCRIPTURES: Isaiah 33:22 For the LORD is our JUDGE [JEHOVAH SHAPHAT], the LORD is our LAWGIVER [JEHOVAH KJACAC], the LORD is our KING [JEHOVAH MELEK]; He will save us. Psalms 5:2-3 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, MY KING, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. 3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
THOUGHT: In the Bible, the Hebrew word MELEK (KING) generally indicates an individual who has absolute power and authority over a certain group(s) of people or to the LORD God, who has rulership and authority over all people, all nations, and over all the affairs of heaven and earth. A king had no obligations but exercised unchecked control upon all the people and affairs of his kingdom. The conduct of an earthly king depended solely upon his own character. The Goodness, Faithfulness, Kindness and many other elements of the Nature of the LORD God blend with His absolute authority and power. He is a Good and Wise KING [MELEK] who always works on the behalf of those who love Him, obey and serve Him. He has no evil motives or dark areas of His character and personality. You can be confident as you surrender your life to Him that He only seeks to do you good.
PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father, JEHOVAH MELEK, MY LORD AND KING: Hearken unto the voice of my cry, MY KING, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. 3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD [JEHOVAH]; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up (Psalms 5:2-3). LORD, as MY KING [JEHOVAH MELEK] I have faith and confidence in Your character and that the principles of Your Kingdom are for my good. I surrender to You and ask that You continue to lead and guide me in the way of Your pleasure as MY KING. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!
ADDITIONAL READING: Psalms 44:4-6 Thou art MY KING, O God: command deliverances for Jacob. 5 Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us. 6 For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.
