YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN AUTHORITY
Jesus approached and, breaking the silence, said to them, All authority (all power of rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.
Matthew 28:18 AMP
God intended people of God to have authority over everything on this earth. The Bible says God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them. The name man composes both male and female inside of it. That's why when God speaks to people through the Prophets in the Scripture. He addressed us as man or men; because it the name of both male and female in the Scriptures.
People of God we have been given back again this authority that the devil stole from Adam in Christ Jesus. We have been given authority over all the power of the enemy, the Scriptures says:
Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you. (Luke 10:19)
Many people of God are weak because they don't use the authority that they have been given in Christ Jesus. They tend to give in temptations, sins and every kind of devil threats. They don't use the blood of Jesus, the name of Jesus and the power of Holy Spirit to overcome devil's obstacles in life.
This morning, I want to remind you to use your authority that you have been given in Christ. If you have a boss who is making your life a living hell in the office; you don't have to fight with him/her in the flesh and blood. You need to apply the blood of Jesus to destroy every source of hate inside his/her heart. You need to use the name of Jesus to break every assignment that the devil has given him/her over your life.
You can control your environment and people who come and go out of your life by the power of the name of Jesus. If you don't have peace inside of you, ask the good Lord to give you His peace through the power of Holy Spirit. If you are experiencing pain in any part of your body; then ask the Lord for the healing. If the devil has stole your past and cause pain inside of your heart; asks the good Lord to restore everything that the devil has stolen and heal your broken heart.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, help me to use authority that You have given me in Christ effectively according to your Gospel in Christ Jesus. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
