We don’t understand how much authority we have. We are God’s children and He gives His children the power to live. First, we have his Holy Spirit. When you receive Jesus, you also receive his Spirit. The Holy Spirit gives you the authority to walk like Him. That power and authority are to witness and become a light in dark places while you are going through your issues. That same spirit who was in Jesus is now alive in you. That means resurrection power is in you. So any dead thing in our life can now be raised up because of Christ. We have the authority from God to effect change in our culture. We have the authority from God to change our perspective and we have that authority to call darkness to light.
Luke 10:19 – Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
1 Peter 2:9 – But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
Romans 8:11 – But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
Prayer – Father, I receive the authority that you have given me to trample on those things that are against me. I am chosen to do this because I represent your kingdom here on earth. I thank you the same spirit that was in Jesus that rose from the dead is now in me to do great and wonderful things for you. In Jesus name, Amen.
