Word-Filled Wednesday: Romans & 1st Timothy

1 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. 2 Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.

5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience. 6 This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. 7 Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor. Romans 13: 1-2, 5-7

No. I didn’t vote for him, but he is the President of the United States and my children, friends and family will bear witness to the respect I have for that office and the person who holds it.

I don’t know if he is a Christian. He says he is. I pray first for his relationship with God, then for his choices.

1 I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 1st Timothy 2:1-3

I trust God.

  1. You say you trust God, trust His will is always done and trust God ordained, gave President Obama life for this purpose and for this time. May you begin to feel in your heart and spirit the inspiriation, hope and joy so many Americans have in their hearts at this time- this can only be the hand of God.
    With Love

    Willnette – I do trust God. I pray his will is always done, but even in those cases when it is not, my hope and joy lies in the promise of Romans 8:28. I will be praying regularly for President Obama. (by JSM)
