Today’s devotion is based on John 19: 11, “Jesus answered him, “You would have no authority over me at all unless it had been given you from above. Therefore he who delivered me over to you has the greater sin.”
The verse for today reminds me to be mindful of wisely submitting to the decisions of others in authority over me, as Jesus did, even when I don’t like their choices. At the end of this time, may the story be told of you and me responding well to authority, in a godly way, for the good of people.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, help leaders who have faith in Jesus follow his example. Give them wisdom and help them to make choices that benefit others. Help me to respond in a godly manner to that authority so that others will see your light in all I do. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
