The King of Glory

The mighty lion strutted through the jungle one day.

He came to a zebra, roared loudly, and asked, “Who is the king of the jungle?”

“You are, O great one,” the zebra replied as it bowed before him.

The lion approached a gorilla and bore his fierce teeth. “Who is the king of the jungle?”

The gorilla hung his head and said, “You are, O great one.”

A herd of gazelles ran past, and the lion called to them: “Who is the king of the jungle?”

They trembled at the sight of him, and called out with one voice, “You are, O great one.”

Then, the lion walked up to the elephant. “Who is the king of the jungle?”

Suddenly the elephant picked up the lion with his massive trunk, swung the lion from side to side, bashed his head against a tree, slammed him three times into the ground, threw him ten feet in the air, and let him drop with a thud to the earth.

The dazed lion dusted himself off, and as he limped away, called back over his shoulder: “You didn’t have to get so angry just because you don’t know the answer!”

Ultimately, the most important question to settle in your mind and heart is: Who is king in your life?

Only when Jesus Christ is ruling and reigning in your life will your life have purpose and meaning.

David, the great king of Israel, wrote these words about a King greater than he:

Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory! Selah (Psalm 24:10)

The goal of prayer, worship, and all of life for the believer is to ask the “King of glory” to be present in our midst. Nothing else will satisfy our hearts. Today, as you meditate on Psalm 24, ask the Lord to show you a glimpse of His glory and power.

Have a great day and keep moving forward!
