Use What’s Been Given to You

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
(Luke 10:19).
  
As a believer, you are a person with authority and the devil
knows it! The original authority to care for the earth that God gave Adam has
been handed back to you! Jesus came back from death with the keys of hell and
death (Revelation 1:18). Keys represent authority.
 
Just before Jesus left the earth to be seated at the right
hand of the Father He gave His authority as the New Creation man back to the
church (Matthew 28: 18-19). You now have the same authority that Jesus had when
He walked the earth! You are seated in a place of authority called heavenly
places in Christ (Ephesians 2:6). Your position of authority is far above all principality, power, might,
and dominion
(Ephesians 1: 21). Satanic
power is under your feet!
 
Satan’s knows that you have authority. He plays a game of
bluff with you. He tells you that you’re defeated; that you’ll never amount to
anything; that nothing that God has promised will ever come to pass in your
life; that you’ll be sick and broke all your life; that God doesn’t care; and
that you should go ahead and throw in the towel and give up. He’s an accuser.
And He’s a liar (John 8:44)!
 
Many believers buy into Satan’s lies and quit fighting the
fight of faith. They perish for refusing to act on the Word! Make a decision
today to resist the devil and his lies. Throw off from yourself the blanket of
unbelief that keeps you down! Act on the Word today! Take the sword of the
Spirit and go to work. Speak God’s Word over your life, your family, your body,
your finances, and your circumstances. Declare that your past sins had been
removed, your present is blessed, and your future is bright. Use your Jesus
given authority today and command Satan to take his hands off of you and those
around you. You have the authority to bind and loose (Matthew 18:18).
 
The Father is waiting today for you to act. He has done all
He will ever do about blessing your life. All things are yours (1 Corinthians
3: 21-22).! But all is lost if you fail to act! The Father has faith in you,
that you’ll rise to the position that He’s placed you in. A position of favor,
of blessing, of honor, and of responsibility!
 
Make the Father’s heart glad today by using the authority
He’s given you. He’s counting on you to carry out His plans!
