Today, I want to give thanks to God for the leaders of this country. With the elections, there have been so much disagreement with the decisions that have been made. Many people don’t believe that God would place certain people in authority. But we do not know all of God’s plans, for if we did we would die from the overwhelming of the thought. So all we can do is trust in the Lord and hope to see His plan move through His people.
1 Peter 2:13-17
New International Version (NIV)
13 Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, 14 or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. 15 For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. 16 Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. 17 Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.
