Whether you’re excited or scared on this historical Inauguration day...

I wanted to bring to you a beautiful passage in the Bible to help remind us that God is always, and has always been, in control. Our trust is to be placed firstly in His Mighty and Righteous hand above all else.

“Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities,
for there is no authority except that which God has established.
The authorities that exist have been established by God.

Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong.

Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority?
Then do what is right and you will be commended.
For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good.
But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the
sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.

Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience. This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing.”
Romans 13:1-6

Cast your cares on God and give yourself the gift of less worry by placing your full trust in God, not in men. <3
