Your present condition does not dictate your future, your faith in God does.
The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.

Confession


And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)

The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.

Monday Readings - The Believer's Authority

The Believer's Authority by Kenneth Hagin

This book is a classic, I never get tired of reading it. Whenever I don't have a book to read I pick this one up and it never fails to minister to me. It reminds me of the authority I have as a believer.

Authority is power delegate to someone, and in our case as believers we have been given authority, to deal with the enemy. We have not been called to pray to God about the devil, we are to exercise our authority that has been given to us

Luke 10:19 says "Behold I give unto you power (authority) to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the powers of the enemy.
We have been given authority over the enemy, and we need to understand that because we have been delegated authority, we have someone backing us and we need not be afraid of the enemy. All authority that was given to Christ belongs to us through Him, so when we pray for the sick we are exercising authority over the enemy.



Ephesians 6:12 says for we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
But we can thank God that we have authority over these evil spirits through Jesus Christ.
Our fight with the devil should be with the understanding that we have authority over him because he is already defeated, Jesus defeated him for us

We need to always remember that in our battle against the enemy, that we are above them and have the authority over them
As long as the devil can keep us in unbelief we will not get your victory. we cannot move by what we see or feel.
We have to be moved by what the word says. Its all about what you believe.

I have this book too - it is a great one! I think we would be much better off if we really understood the power and authority we have in Christ. Great post!

I agree with Tracy...we really, really have to understand the authority we have in the name Jesus. We need to tap into that power.

Repentance is a God given opportunity to enter into the blessings of the Lord and escape from the oppression of the enemy.
We would like to pray for you, please leave your request below.
