Topic: *THE POWERS THAT BE, AS ORDAINED BY GOD ALMIGHTY (PT. 1)*
Romans 13:1-3 King James Version (KJV)
13 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
Every authority in this world belongs to God. God is the source of all authority and power in this world. Every other authority and power is a resource.
Even the devil and his cohorts have him as their source. He created them and gave them the power and everything they are made of. They were given these for good purposes but they have perverted what they have. They therefore have no authority over the children of God.
Every ruler, every Man of God, ordained by God and placed in His set up has his authority to function from God Almighty and he is just a resource exercising this authority. Anybody ordained by God as an authority over you has been given the authority and power to rule you by God.
Beloved it is your duty to obey anybody God has ordained as an authority over you. Fighting against these authorities is fighting against God.
When you fight against God you shall surely lose and in your loss you bring damnation to yourself.
It is mostly only the wicked and people with evil agenda who fight against God by fighting the authorities He has ordained over them.
When you do good, resisting these authorities and powers do not even cross your mind for these authorities shall give you praise when you do good and deliver the reward of God to you according to His will.
Beloved, *IT'S ALL ABOUT JESUS* and no one else. If we would be subject to the authorities that be as ordained by God in His set up over us as Jesus was subject to God when He was on earth. We will be as successful as Jesus wants us to be.
Prayer: Daddy please help me understand your authority as given to the rulers you have set over me and teach me how to live in peace with them so I don't disrespect or fight against you by doing these against them.
_EXHIBIT YOUR FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS AND THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY SHALL SURELY REWARD YOU_
