God Has a Plan for - Rulers


Romans 13: 1 (NIV) - "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." (Please read verse 2-7 also).

God has a plan and He is working His plan. And this includes government. Some believe that as Christians we should steer clear of politics. (This is what has gotten us into the mess we are in). Others look for government to save the world. (We have one Savior - Jesus Christ). However, God does place rulers in positions of authority to reward and punish nations for their adherence or rejection of His Word. Now, I am not equating any individual or activity in this statement, just reminding what Scripture tells us. And, God strongly warns us to submit and respond to those in authority because He is the One who placed them there. They are there to accomplish His plan.

We must pray for those in leadership positions because they are there because of God's plan. He is using them to forward His agenda for the ages. Today, seek to pray and not criticize those God has placed in authority over you. Let Him work. He will.
