Declaring and Standing on Our Authority

Print

Life can be beautiful and exciting, but it can also have an ugly side as well. Whether we master it, or let it master us, depends on our mindset. Some people think they’re simply helpless victims of circumstances, and therefore put up with bad situations. By comparison, born-again believers have received the authority to rule over things that defeat everyone else.

There’s always a reason behind everything that goes on in the world; nothing “just happens.” Even though the devil has already been beaten, he remains hard at work behind the scenes to try to bring trouble and adversity into our lives. However, we have the right to put our foot down, stand firm, and boldly declare our authority. We’re the redeemed of the Lord, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy.

We have the same power as Jesus. He walked in victory; we can too. He spoke His Word to us so that, in Him, we might have peace. In the world we’ll have tribulation, but we can rejoice because He has overcome the world.

By grace, we win in life. Jesus took everything Satan tries to use against us and nailed it to the cross. By doing this, Christ spoiled principalities and powers, made a show of them openly, and triumphed over them. We can give thanks to God, who always gives us victory through Jesus.

Grace also makes us God’s children. We’ve been given the Holy Spirit, who constantly reminds us of the authority we’ve inherited as His sons and daughters. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. The Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God.

Circumstances don’t have to define the quality of our lives. We face a defeated foe, and we don’t have to let him psych us out. We’re operating from a place of victory; embracing this mindset keeps us in the winner’s circle.

Prayer:

God, You didn’t put us on this earth for us to be victims of the enemy; You gave us the same power and authority over him as You have. Applying Your Word to our lives always gives us the victory. Thank You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
