When we come to difficult decisions about how to respond to authority, we need to prayerfully consider what God wants in our lives. God has established the authorities we experience on earth for His purpose. We may not understand that purpose when living or dealing with the situations in the present, but we can trust that God has a plan. Through talking to God in prayer and listening to His will in our lives, we can know how to react to authority to further His plan.
Trust God's authority when responding to earthly authority!
Thank You for Your authority in my life. Help me to know how You want me to respond to earthly authority so Your glory can shine through my words and actions. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
