“The Lord hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all” (Psalm 103:19). Wisdom says, “By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth” (Proverbs 8:16). “He that ruleth his spirit [is better] than he that taketh a city” (Proverbs 16:32). “And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel” (Matthew 2:6). “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful” (Colossians 3:15). “Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine” (1 Timothy 5:17).
Golden thought: Let the peace of God rule in your hearts.
