Faith In Gods Authority

He is above all things!

Its in coming to a place of realization that what we think, do, say etc are not above the ultimate authority of God by His word.

His word even proclaim that His ways are not our ways and and His thoughts are not like our thoughts. His ways are higher and His thoughts are higher.

God will have the last word for His word is true and just, full of mercy and grace, as well as rebuke and correction to align us to how he sees and how we should live in accordance to that ultimate truth.

Our strong self will, logic and emotions from our soul like to get in the way and make its own stand, but that stand is short lived because its mostly done in our own strength and our strength has limits.

Whereas, if we do it Gods way and pull on His strength, lean on His ways and thoughts we can succeed in the ways of God. For we are putting Him, His word above our way. Seeking His will over our own is what He likes for us to choose.

Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.
Romans 13:1 NASB

This also comes in handy as God places leadership in our lives also. People such as Pastors are chosen by God given an authority by His word to help equip and prepare us. For the kingdom of God has an established governing pattern.

God uses our leaders in our life to reinforce not only the validity but the power and might of His word. That is used in accordance to the set way that we can be prosperous in spirit, soul and body.

It is also taking Him at Word that we trust and rely on His power to see us through, perform miracles and bless us. His word has infinite power and wisdom to help us through all of life.

May we lean not to our own understanding and trust in the Lord with all might. For it is He and through His word that we can sustain in this life.
