SIH HALTAL ICONEph 6:5 KJV – Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;


For the SIH devotional on this subject:


  1. Scott Sholar says:

    This is, probably, one of the toughest things to do when we see our leaders faltering. I pray that our political, business, social and religious leaders would be saved.

    • Rob Barkman says:

      How very true Scott. May we all continue to be in sincere intercessory prayer for those in authority. Whether in agreement with them or no.

  2. gwennonr says:

    This is something I struggle with daily as for the last two years I have under the thumb of someone I can only describe as an absolutely evil tyrant. Under this evil one’s rule, I have watched helplessly as a number of rights and privileges I used to enjoy have evaporated one by one. But since this is not someone I deal with directly, I have no recourse. In fact, I am in such a situation that anything I might try to do would only make things worse. I am constantly enraged at the way I am being treated, but for the foreseeable future, I will be at the mercy of this tyrant. I pray constantly for God to remove this evil from my life. But it hasn’t happened yet.

    • Rob Barkman says:

      My prayers are with you Gwennonr. It sounds as if you certainly are facing a difficult situation.
      We know that the Lord is allowing this time in your life for your ultimate good… perhaps maturing you and bringing you closer to Him as you rely upon Him to get you through this situation.
      Also I believe this is a great opportunity for you to be a witness of the Lord’s love, kindness and forgiveness to those who hold authority over you. Although you are being mistreated, you have a very unique opportunity to share Christ with them in your words, actions and attitudes.

      May the Lord bless you in this very difficult situation.

    Thank you for your prayers, Mr. Barkman. I will take your words to heart.
