We probably all know someone with "authority issues." Honestly, I think we all have some authority issues! Nobody likes to be told what they can and can't do, nobody likes to submit, nobody likes to relinquish power. However, God's Word is very clear on how we should respond to anyone in authority (boss, parent, law enforcement, pastor, etc):
"Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God." Romans 13:1
Even if we don't agree with the person in the position, we must honor the position, and trust that God will handle the rest.
Lord, I want to honor You by honoring those you put in authority over me. Help me remember to be respectful and obedient as though I'm serving You. Please give wisdom and strength to all those in positions of power that they would also honor You with their decisions. Amen.
