Daily Devotional

25 July 

13 Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, 14 or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. 15 For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. (1 Peter 2:13-15, ESV)

It’s sometimes tough for us to realize / accept that certain authorities are placed over us by God. It’s their job to punish those who do wrong and reward those who do right. Try looking at the people placed over you as the hands and feet of God, and pray for them!

Prayer: Lord, honoring the authorities you have placed over me honors you. Let my life be one of worship.
