The king as per bible new testament king are those who believe in Jesus Christ The King of Kings . Our heart is a place where every kind of evil and holy things take place which is a war place. I love this verse a lot that if we are going out the track our Master is able to control us so that we should not get perish. Thanks Lord Jesus for controlling us.

I am so glad that the Almighty who is the Creator of heaven n earth controls the king so there is no arbitrary use of power...at least the king is controllable.

King Solomon was guided by the Lord in the beginning of his kingdom, but as the time went his heart became wicked. This is true for all people that our hearts change with time, letís pray so that our hearts may remain faithful to God and to Jesus our Lord. Watch and pray!
