far above all rule and authority and power and dominion

“…that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.” Ephesians 1:20-23 (ESV)

There’s no doubt about it. Jesus Christ is the King of kings. He is the Lord of lords (1 Timothy 6:15).

There is nothing that isn’t under His rule. Zip. Nothing. Nada!

And that includes us.

Yet we humans have a natural tendency to shun authority. Wanting to do our own thing. Clinging desperately to control of our own lives at all costs.

It’s ironic really. Because letting Jesus be ruler is very liberating (Matthew 11:29-30).


prayer : that I would not try to wrestle control of my life away from God all the time

action : examine those areas of my life that I try to control
