God places those he wants in positions of government to accomplish His greater purpose. Only those that do wrong need to fear punishment.
Do not count on your own strength but give thanks and worship the Lord always for fear of being cut off as unbelievers are.
We give thanks to God for choosing us in love and can be bold and fearless when speaking His truth. Do not be afraid of upsetting men.
As followers of Christ we are privileged to enjoy a spirit of adoption with the Father, not a spirit of fear. We come to the Father through prayer and dependence as His children.
