Authority of Christ
Updated: Dec 7, 2020
On the evening of election day, I felt drained after working the polls for 13 hours then coming home to watch distressing election news unfold.
So, I quieted myself, filled my belly￼￼ with food after 3 days of fasting, and I fell into bed. I felt assured that joy would come in the morning, and I drifted off to sleep.
The following morning I marveled at the clouds scattered about the sky as I drove to my first appointment. Nearing the end of my road, I saw a cloud that resembled a snake. I spoke out loud, “Lord, that looks exactly like a snake”. As I turned from my road onto the highway, right before me was another cloud. This one looked exactly like a scorpion! Immediately a Bible verse came to my mind and I began to pray. ￼
When I reached my destination￼, I took out my Bible and began to reflect on the scripture that had come to mind on my drive. The Holy Spirit began to speak to me about our authority in Christ.￼
We do not have to fear the battle. We do not yield to human ideas, systems, and institutions. We keep ourselves anchored in faith and spiritual authority. We release spiritual authority through belief, declarations, and decrees of the word of God. The word of the Lord will shake the nation!￼￼ As believers, our names are registered in Heaven!! We are victorious!￼
What is your battle today? Take a strategic look at it and ask the Lord to download an authoritative revelation of His word that you can claim and declare back to Him! ￼
“Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you. But don’t rejoice because evil spirits obey you; rejoice because your names are registered in heaven.”
Luke 10:19-20 NLT
“So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.”
Isaiah 55:11 ESV
