Romans 13:1 tells us that "the authorities that exist have been established by God", and verse 4 of that chapter says that "he is God's servant to do you good" and "to bring punishment on the wrong-doer". Verse 6 says "This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God's servants, who give their full time to governing."
As flawed as they each have been, our presidents have been put in place by God to serve his "big picture" purposes. Regardless of who you vote for or what you value or dislike in our government, I hope you'll consider joining me for a minute to pray and thank God for the presidential leaders in history that have held our democracy together and upheld the freedoms we have today. I hope you'll also join me in praying for our current president, asking God to give him wisdom as he makes decisions and to bless him when his decisions reflect the will of God for our country.
Have a great President's Day!
