Romans 13:1-2

ESV 1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. MSG 1 Be a good citizen. All governments are under God. Insofar as there is peace and order, it's God's order. So live responsibly as a citizen. ESV 2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. MSG 2 If you're irresponsible to the state, then you're irresponsible with God, and God will hold you responsible.
