We can see God’s rule and commands as limits to our freedom and rebel against him, or we can choose to serve him. And of course, when we submit to God’s authority, we will discover that he is not oppressive but a refuge.
Pray with confidence today, because although things may look bleak now, we know that the future is glorious.
God laughs. Not because he approves of what these rulers and nations are doing. No, he laughs because he knows that although they seem powerful now, their time will run out and their kingdoms will fade.
We live in a society that defines freedom as the ability to do anything we want and has only one law: do whatever makes you feel good. The only problem with this philosophy is that the Bible teaches us that following all of our whims brings slavery, not freedom.
