God's Universal Rule
Psalm 103:19-22
The LORD has prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom rules over all.…

David said, "His kingdom ruleth over all." Our Saviour, as Creator, is also the God of providence. His kingdom has no limits. In Detroit, in the State of Michigan, the last place where I was before coming home, wife and child and self frequently crossed the river into Canada, just to see the old Union Jack for a bit of change from the Stars and Stripes. There is the boundary; the black, solemn deep Detroit, on which Indians paddled their canoes not so long ago. The States ended at the one shore, and when you got to the other there was another flag, another kingdom, another ruler. But no man ever yet found the limits of God's kingdom; no angel on mighty wing ever passed the boundary of God's providential kingdom. Why, the very Devil as he tumbled to the pit never got beyond the kingdom of the God against whom he had rebelled. In hell God reigns.

(John Robertson.)
