Providence 365, Week 27 {July 3rd, 2011}

Providence 365, Week 27

Copied and Pasted from www.faithsister.com

These holidays are wonderful reminders of our responsibilities as dual citizens, having citizenship in both our earthly nation and in the Kingdom of God. We are reminded to be good citizens here, to pray for our fellow citizens and for those in authority over us, that they might be wise, courageous, and righteous:
"...I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings,
be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority..."

Whether or not we agree with the views and actions of those in authority, whether or not those actions are righteous, God's Word is clear, stating that authority was given them by Him:

" Let every person be in subjection to the governing authorities.
For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God."

My layout - will add journaling later
So, I urge you, whether or not you are celebrating Independence Day this weekend, to say prayers and petitions for your governmental (nation, state, city or town) authorities. To seek the good of your city and fellow citizens, "that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity."
