Romans 13:1

Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God.

Romans 13:1 NLT

We are called to submit to those in authority.  No matter how we may feel personally about someone who is in a position of authority, we are called to submit to them.  The only time this would change is if what they were calling us to do was against the Lord and His kingdom, it is at that time we are not called to submit what they are calling us to do.

There are Christians around the world who live under governments in which they are heavily persecuted.  May we continue to pray daily from one another that we would be filled with God’s strength and His wisdom.  Everything we accomplish on this earth is through the power and might of the Holy Spirit alone.
