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.
When I say I want to do something without engaging my choice to move on it, I deceive myself. We rule our choices and then our decisions rule us.
I can come to the table with a whole list of wants yet never choose. All my best intentions only paint an ideal rather than deliver results.
All grounds of dealing with the Lord, both positive and negative, are holy ground unto the Lord because our Lord places that much worth on our choice.
