A Romans 13 Kind Of A Day

Today is inauguration day in the United States. Barack Obama and Joseph Biden will be sworn in as the new president and vice-president, respectively, within the next hour. These are the men that the American voting public elected to serve and lead our country for the next four years.

Whatever my political affliation is, whether I voted Republican or Democrat or Independent on November 4, I am reminded in Romans 13:1-7 of the New Testament that ” … there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.”

I also remember the Old Testament Scripture in which I am told to, “Let the name of God be blessed forever and ever, For wisdom and power belong to Him. And it is He who changes the times and epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings; He gives wisdom to wise men, And knowledge to men of understanding.” (Daniel 2:21)

With these passages in mind, let all Christ-followers pray for our nation’s new president and vice president and their families, trusting the LORD for His sovereign oversight of our country and its leadership, for the outworking of His divine will and glory.
