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.
