Romans 13:1, 2 “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorizes, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”
I once heard it said that we do not fight against flesh and blood. But do we, I mean can sometimes the flesh and blood that we fight with be our own? It is so hard to fathom that the highest authority in my life is the Lord; I mean I do not see Him but I obey Him. Because I obey Him, His authority does exist. What that means is that everything that is contrary to God does not exist. An example would be in the law of the land that has established it is OK to be gay; the authorities have set that in place. Or is that from the rulers, the authorities of this dark world and spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm? If that is the case then for us who follow the Lord that authority does not exist. We only give life to what we obey, to live by the spirit is life.
It is only through following the Holy Spirit who carries with him the authority that governs our life. Today’s breakthrough is that by following the Lord, letting Him Govern are life, then we can be established. At my work, I have my own set agenda, but the authority there keeps giving me more responsibility. Today I challenge us to get rid of our own set agenda and let the Lord establish us as He sees fit. Dear Lord, I thank you for who you are and that you reign from eternity to everlasting, may you establish the hands of our work this day as we submit to your authority in our lives. – Amen
