Let everyone be subject 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, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.
Regulations and laws that do not subvert the will of God should be respected and followed. A painful truth for those who are fiercely independent. Lord, may I not bring judgment on myself or my family.
