A daily devotional through the Bible speaking with God as Adam and Eve may have in the garden east of Eden. Our website http://alittlewalkwithgod.com
When you see the wicked prosper at the expense of the good, it’s easy to want revenge on them. When you see the wicked getting away with their wrong doing, it’s easy to want to strike back and take justice into your hands. That isn’t God's way. His word tells you to continue to do good. His word tells you to that vengeance is His. These verses in Peter tell you to obey all authorities He has placed over you.
Sometimes it’s hard to remember that God is the one that allows authorities to reign. Whether in countries as dictators or elected by the populace, He’s the one that allows the authority to sit in their seat of power. It takes nothing for Him to change the course of events to prevent or change the outcome of elections, battles, coups, inheritances. He allows authorities to reign.
