Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920), Dutch politician, journalist, statesman, and theologian who served as the Prime Minister of the Netherlands from 1901-1905 once said about the Kingship of Jesus:
There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, “Mine!”

Jesus is sovereign over His creation, over our relationships, over our homes, over our possessions, over our wallets and bank accounts, our closets, our refrigerators, over our marriages, over our computer screens, over our thoughts, over our business dealings, over our children, over our decisions – everything. There is nothing that isn’t under King Jesus’ rule and reign. The question is, do we as Christ followers truly live life based in that reality? Or are there things in our life that we want control over?
