Your Spiritual Authority and Spiritual Law Part 2

Print

Our authority comes directly from Jesus. God wants us to use it and experience His best for our lives, but we must believe it. When the storm at sea threatened to sink the disciples ship, Peter got out of the ship and walked on water at Jesus’ bidding. However, when Peter became afraid, he began to sink. Jesus saved him, but rebuked him for his doubt. Jesus did not force Peter to get out of the ship, but He did authorize him to walk on the water. Likewise, Jesus will not force us to get out of the situations and circumstances that the enemy likes to use to hurt and distract us, but He has authorized us to walk on them. Luke chapter 10 verse 19 says, “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Jesus supplied the power, but it is our responsibility (just like it was Peter’s) to flip the switch and activate the power by actually walking.

If we allow doubt to live within us, like Peter, we will begin to sink. This week, remember that God will not change His law of healing or prosperity, He will not change His law of speaking (you will have what you say) and He most definitely will not break His promises to us. There is no need to doubt or become stagnant in any circumstance or situation. We must fix our eyes on Jesus by spending time in the Word of God and WALK. He intends for us to move in the spiritual authority that He has given us and to progress in all that we do.

Prayer

Lord, Your word is spiritual law and through Your son Jesus You have given us authority to command every promise in the Bible to manifest in our lives. We call on Your name right now Lord to say thank You for all that You’ve done and all that You’ve empowered us to do. We seek to please You by having faith in Your word and knowing that if You said it, You shall bring it to pass. It is in Jesus’ name that we pray. Amen.
