You and I can live victorious now! Why? The reason is that the devil is a defeated foe and overcome by Jesus. From the beginning, Jesus has been given all power and authority in heaven and on earth by His Father. And we have been given that same power and authority that Jesus Christ received. Jesus promised to give His church power and authority to build His church, and not even the gates of hell could prevail our advancement. Jesus has made known our ultimate purpose as the Church.
Jesus Christ, the Son of Man never stopped being a deity in the Godhead. He has always been God incarnate. What do I mean by that? Though Jesus was born in the womb of a natural woman, He has also held on to His status as a man and God simultaneously.
He is the second person of the Godhead the very Word that God spoke in the beginning. Not just spoke about, but God's very Word. He later became the Son of Man embodied in the flesh, but He has always remained the Son of God. Jesus tells us in Matthew 11:27, “All things have been handed over to Me by My Father, and no one fully knows and accurately understands the Son except the Father, and no one fully knows and accurately understands the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son deliberately wills to reveal Him.”
What a mystery!
So basically Jesus is telling us that He is the greater One—He is God. And there is no one greater than Him from the past, present or our future. It is good news for us today and why I stated earlier that we could live in victory no matter what comes our way. We can significantly make a difference by operating with the same power and authority that God has given His Son. Though Jesus was God, He knew He had to go through all the same processes as we do as believers because he came as the Son of Man.
The moment the Holy Spirit rested upon Jesus after His natural baptism in water, He had the power of God to rule in the earth. The same goes for us too. So how did Jesus operate with all authority and power in heaven and on earth? How can you and I operate with all authority and power on the earth? Through God's Word and Holy Spirit.
When you speak the Word of God the Holy Spirit goes to work to bring those Words to pass. Every word that God has spoken has creative power. Jesus is God's Creative Power. This is why you must understand that the words you speak have so much power and value. You can't afford to use them carelessly. God gave Jesus power and authority through His Word as He has done for you too so use your power wisely and give the Holy Spirit something good to bring to pass in your life.
Decree It: I have Jesus' power in me now. I choose to use His words wisely and rule in the earth on all occasions. I am fearless! I will give the Holy Spirit something good to work with, "God's Words" so that He can bring them to pass in my life.
