A day that will definately go down in History
More than ever showed up to see the new President be sworn into office. There were so many american flags flowing in the crowd, and tears ....yes tears flowing as well.
I did not vote for this man to be president but I have determined for myself and encourage others as well that I will pray for him and for the decisions that he will make that affect all of us.
Romans 13 says this: (New Century Version)
1.All of you must yield to the government rulers. No one rules unless God has given him the power to rule, and no one rules now without that power from God.2. So those who are against the government are really against what God has commanded. And they will bring punishment on themselves.3. Those who do right do not have to fear the rulers; only those who do wrong fear them. Do you want to be unafraid of the rulers? Then do what is right, and they will praise you.4.The ruler is God's servant to punish those who do wrong. 5.So you must yield to the government, not only because you might be punished, but because you know it is right.
The Study notes on this verse (vs 1 in particular) says this: There is no authority except that which God has established--This does not say that certain forms of government are ordained of God. God established and upholds the principle of government even though some governments do not fulfill His desires.
Wow, we can pray & hope thatthis government will fulfill Gods desires. We can pray for President Obama to have the Fear of the Lord so that he will make Godly decisions for all.
But we must remember that this man is only a man, and that ultimately If we are believers, Gods ways are what we live by, the Holy Spirit is our guide and He will lead us into all Truth.
The Word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. Wake us up Oh Lord, Lead us to look to You, to live according to Your will for our lives each and every day and in every way!
