Authority given by God 10-14-19

Good day everyone and praise the Lord for another wonderful day to serve the One that created everything.


Today’s Prayer

Father, Your Word is a river of life. It satisfies and comforts our souls like a stream in the desert. Please help us to be like the tree planted by the water, with roots that dig down into Your Word and faith that stands strong as the well-rooted tree in the hot and dusty seasons. Bless us, Lord, that we may be a blessing to others. Please guide and direct us in all that we do. Thank you for loving us and providing all we need along the way. In JESUS’ name we pray. Amen.


Let’s eat.


The Power of Authority given by God


Respect for Authority

Romans 13:1-7  


Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished. For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right, but in those who are doing wrong. Would you like to live without fear of the authorities? Do what is right, and they will honor you. The authorities are God’s servants, sent for your good. But if you are doing wrong, of course you should be afraid, for they have the power to punish you. They are God’s servants, sent for the very purpose of punishing those who do what is wrong. So you must submit to them, not only to avoid punishment, but also to keep a clear conscience. Pay your taxes, too, for these same reasons. For government workers need to be paid. They are serving God in what they do. Give to everyone what you owe them: Pay your taxes and government fees to those who collect them, and give respect and honor to those who are in authority.

Quote of the Day

Oh restless heart, that beat against your prison bars of circumstances, yearning for a wider sphere of usefulness, leave God to order all your days. Patience and trust, in the dullness of the routine of life, will be the best preparation for a courageous bearing of the tug and strain of the larger opportunity which God may some time send you.

    Please explain to me how we are to honor and obey a corrupt president /politician (s)

      We as Christians honor what God sees as right and good and call out evil when we see and hear it. Don’t get caught up in the hype because God surely isn’t.
