The Lord reigneth (Ps. 97:1; 99:1 - that 'eth' is KJV-talk for continually present tense). In other words, God is always in control. He is reigning, He has always reigned, and will forever reign. His position is one of ultimate authority. Every earthly authority is subject to Him. God doesn't just allow politics, He causes them to be in power. What's more, His power is so amazing that He can see all people, of all time, in all places ... at the same time with just a glance. He must lower Himself to our level just to care for creation.
