We are being trained to rule and reign under the government of King of the Universe and this is not a mop up job, but a position of ruling.
When the Word of God declares a paradox (two things that appear to contradict), what do I do? Following authorities blindly or in faith?
In our current reality everything is suspect. I know our faith is tested through uncertainty, but I want to live unshaken in shaky times.
What is the power of living under a leader you neither like nor agree with? My disagreement with my leaders doesn't justify my reviling of their authority.
We have cast off the restraints of God, now we're unable to submit to the human authorities. Authority can be a huge finger poke from God’s sovereign reign.
How are believers supposed to react in this social /political climate? Call fire down to stop evil leaders & depraved citizens from destroying our country?
I have learned, through much pain and difficulty that I need NO man. Dependence on anyone or anything other than God is just destructive.
In the middle of shelter in place I have solely run the office and its functions. What could have taken me under has been a huge blessing of functioning.
Our response to government reveals our heart about God. And this is because God uses authority to expose our hidden heart attitudes.
In crisis we find out who we are under authority. This is a call to choose this day to seek the King rather than complaining about our rights being violated.
True silence isn't an exercise in remaining quiet but the art of listening. Anyone can remain quiet but the power of silence lies in listening not speaking.
To walk with God, we quickly learn that comprehensive understanding is unattainable. In the mystery of God, I experience great expanse, not limitation.
