When you are in relationship with God, He provides you with protection and favor. But as you belittle and ctiticize those people He has placed in authority over you, that protection and favor is lifted from you. the bottom line is that God expects you to respect Him and His choices. He expects that you will respect the people He's placed in authority over you. That doesn't mean you have to agree with every one of their decisions, but it does mean you still need to show respect for the position, and the person who is in the position.
"Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished. For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right, but in those who are doing wrong. Would you like to live without fear of the authorities? Do what is right, and they will honor you." (Romans 13:1-3 NLT)
