Jesus wants you and I unshakable and assured!
The Word of God has assured us that while we are in this godless world we have tribulations, trials and struggles. But nevertheless, we have been called to stand firm in our faith and walk in the power of God and access His authority to rule over our circumstances.
I simply defined the meaning of the word "authority" as to exercise or make use of the power of God that He has given us.
Ephesians 6:12 tell us, "This is not a wrestling match against a human opponent. We are wrestling with rulers, authorities, the powers who govern this world of darkness, and spiritual forces that control evil in the heavenly world." These forces of darkness are not merely human ideas running around in our minds, but rather preyers prowling around looking for gullible innocent victims to devour.
God saw the results of sin that left us all broken and destroyed, betrayed, bewitched, shepherdless, unloved, spiritually blinded, and separated from a relationship with Him. He sent His only begotten Son—Jesus, who is "the brightness of His glory" and the "image of the Father" to undo the damage that Satan had done and to destroy his power. God did this because of His love for us.
Jesus got all of the power of God back for us, and He has given it back to those who believe in Him so that they can rule again in the earth as God had originally intended.
Now it's our turn to choose while we are here in the earth!
Will you choose to rule over the influence of sin in the earth or be ruled by it? Jesus has conquered the world for you.
Decree It: Today, I access and make use of the power of God that He has given me through Jesus Christ to rule in the earth. I say today, "It is finished!" I choose to think right I have been created in God's image and likeness to rule over every living thing that moves on the earth. I rule today with the help of the Spirit of God within me.
