Unto The King

**Taken from a page in my daily devotional book**

Legend records that when she was a little girl, Queen Elizabeth got separated from her parents while on a hike in a forest. Afraid and alone, the young princess followed a path until she came to a cottage. An elderly woman welcomed the child into her home and proceeded to brew a pot of tea. Elizabeth explained her plight and asked for help. The woman, in whose home the princess sought refuge, was most impressed with Elizabeth’s etiquette and grace. Eventually she asked the child, “Are you someone special?” to which Elizabeth answered, “Oh no, mum. I’m no one particularly special. But my father is the king!”

What a wonderful picture of who we are and what we are called to be! In the grand scheme of things, we aren’t all that insignificant. We are easily lost in the jungle of life. We are in need of others to help us find direction. But our Father is the King of the universe. He has everything under control and is not overcome by the challenges that steal our peace. As we focus our eyes on Him instead of the obstacles around us, not only will we discover an ability to cope, we will reflect His grace and beauty. As we look to Him today, those around us will see in us a family resemblance.

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen. I Timothy 1:17

Prayer: Celebrate the freedom you have being a creature and not a Creator. Thank God that you are not responsible for holding the world together. Express gratitude that He is.
