January 20–Our Call From God…Obedience…Not our Opinion

I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone—for kings and all those in authority…

1 Timothy 2:1-2

Today is the first anniversary of President Obama being inaugurated as the President of the United States. 

It’s a good day to take time to willingly and lovingly obey our Holy God’s call on each of us as His people. We are to sincerely lift up our requests, prayers and intercessions for each of the governing authorities over us.

And God’s call on us goes even deeper. God wants us to lift up thanksgiving for every single person who serves in a position of official power over us. That’s humbling…and maybe for some, that’s very challenging.

Regardless of our political opinions, that is still God’s call on us as His people. Will we choose to sincerely, willingly and lovingly obey that call??

Take time to pray for all those in authority. And be thankful!!!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
