“A Government Is Established By God!”

21 04 2011

Greetings I bring to to you in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ Our Redeemer! Dearly beloved friends, as I bring you to another posting of mine, let us take a look at the above topic. “Is a Government establish by God?” And the answer is definitely “Yes” my friends! If a “government” is establish by God, can we go against the “government” that God has instituted? Let us check it out friends through the word of God!

Dear friends, let us take a very close look at the topic again! “Is A Government Establish By God?” Before we go into the word of God, first and foremost let us see why did God create a government? We have to go back to the book of Genesis in the Old Testament. When God made the man Adam, God gave Adam all the authority to “govern” every living thing that God created. Adam obeyed God and did his work faithfully and obediently. As soon as Adam and Eve sinned, a government became necessary for God otherwise You and I would have the “Law of the jungle” to abide with! God needed a “government” to govern the people. The people were sinning from bad to worse. The laws that was instituted was to be carried out by the “government!” God needed “good leaders” to “govern” the “government!” The purpose of the government that God has establish is to “restraint evil” and “commend what is good.” That is the essence of what a “government” is for! A “government” should promote “righteousness” and “justice” under God’s Sovereign authority!

Dear friends, let us take a look at what the word of God has to say. As we go to the book of Romans 13 we see that the word of God says that “Everyone must submit himself 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, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.” Leaders, you who are governing the government must know that it is not by your will you are put there to govern the government! The government has been established by God. Leaders, you are God’s co-workers and God’s servant to do the duty that you are called to! Leaders, you have to govern the country wisely, justly and for the good of each and every citizen. That is why you are being put there as the “Head of the Government!” Do not misuse the powers that have been given to you. You are to govern the country with full “honesty” and “integrity!” It is not at all about the “power” and “authority” that you have! Above all it is God’s power and authority that rules every kingdom! Again leaders, you are only God’s workmen to do His will and not your will. If you do not govern what God has “entrusted” unto you it will be taken away from you and will be given to others who can govern the country with honesty, justice, integrity and with wisdom!

Dear friends, as I have mentioned above what the word of God has said  about those who rebel against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted. In every government there are “oppositions.” They are not there to rebel against the government but they are there to make sure that everything is under check and balance meaning that the opposition is there to make sure that the government is really carrying out the agenda meant for the citizens and not for their own “selfish agenda” meant only for them and their cronies! Likewise, “whoever” runs the government, either the opposition or the ruling party, has to make sure that they have to carry out their duties to the best of their ability because there is no authority except that which God has granted and establish on those God choose to run the government!

Dear friends, we as conquerors and warriors for God, let us get down on our knees and start praying for those God have put in authority especially the King, all the Ministers in the Cabinet and all those in the Leadership position that they will rule the country wisely and justly for the good of all mankind regardless of race and religion. Leaders, today if you are put in charge to head a government please make sure to see your real self in the mirror daily to confirm that You are really who You are! The people are looking up to you to make sure that you are carrying out what has been “entrusted” into your hands by God! If you do not carry it out, You have to give an account to God because God sees everything and no agenda is hidden from His eyes. Dear friends,let us pray to God to give us the grace to submit to those in authority be it in our families, in the church, towards our employers and also those in the governing bodies that God has instituted! Have a Blessed Lent Season.

God Bless.
