Bible Verse of the Day

Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.

Romans 13:1

Submit… L who really likes this word?

I know many times I hear this word as a form of defeat… but it is not. When you submit you are agreeing to abide by the direction of the leaders and to follow their will. Jesus modeled this by following the will of His Father.

But then again Jesus had a very good King to take direction from. So what do we do if our leader is not a “good” king in our eyes. It is in this we follow the lead of others that have walked before us. Typically in the bible we are called to follow the will of the ones in charge, unless it contradicts with God’s laws.

Yes there will be issues that our leaders guide us into that we don’t agree with, but if they are not against the word of God we are called as God’s people to follow them. Why is that?

So that we do not give the enemy a foothold by labeling us rebellious, rigid, or to attack our character. These are usually issue that are temporal in nature (not eternal). In Matthew when Jesus is asked about paying taxes He tells His people to “ give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s”. The hard part is discerning which is which.

That is where we rely on our prays to the Father to have the Holy Spirit guide us in His truth.

This applies to national leaders, local leaders, our employers, our teachers, our parents…. Etc..

Take time today to ask God on where it is you are doing this well and where it is you need to change.

Have a blessed day,
