You Have Authority So Use It!

How to use your authority of God. Keys to victorious faith. Inspirational blogAs a believer you have been given the authority to speak and cause things to happen. However we must know the authority we have been given as Children of God and know how to walk in that authority.

So how do we know we have been given power and authority?
If you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior then you are His representative in the earth. Do you get that – YOU ARE Jesus’ representative on this earth right now if you are a born again believer!

Colossians 1:13 says this “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:” The word power is translated “authority.” So this is saying you and I have been delivered from the authority of darkness and placed into God’s kingdom. So this world and the enemy have no authority over us, we have been delivered from it! But we must know we have!

Jesus said in Matthew 28:18-19 “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore…”. That power was given to you and I as part of our inheritance in Christ Jesus. We have entered into this position of authority because we are in Him.

Jesus succeeded in securing all power by going to the cross, dying, rising again and defeating Satan in the pit of hell

He came to this earth as a man for one reason: to recapture the authority Satan had stolen through Adam’s disobedience in the Garden of Eden.

After Jesus secured that power and authority, Jesus freely gave it over into the hands of those who would believe on Him—you and I.

We must know and understand this power we have been given. Our words are to be words of faith and God expects us to know our authority, speak with our authority, and walk in our authority. It is not enough for us to simply accept the wonderful work Jesus did at Calvary. We are held responsible for much more.

In Mark 16:15-18 tells when Jesus appeared to His disciples after His resurrection from the dead. It was at that time that He delegated the authority to carry out this work. Jesus said: “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover”
This is a description of the authority Jesus has given to us!

My question is how do you see yourself?

God sees you in Christ, in His image.
Romans 8:29 tells us God predestined us to be conformed to the image of His Son. God sees you and I through the blood of the covenant. On the inside, we are the image of Jesus. As born-again believers, we have authority and we are in His image.

I want you to spend the next week meditating on the fact that when God looks at you, He sees Jesus! This will give you an inner image so you can begin to see yourself as God sees you!

You must know AND accept the authority you have been given so you will be able to go to the throne of grace boldly as Hebrews 4:16 says you can. You have permission and authority to go to God’s throne BOLDLY and ask!

If you do not know what you have -how do you take it? Remember God is looking at you through the blood covenant. He looks at the inside of a man – upon the heart. This is not the blood pumping heart; this is the spirit of a man. And when our spirit has been recreated by accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior God sees you in Christ, in His image. We must begin seeing ourselves as God sees us – in Christ, having authority – and we need to start walking in that authority!

Let’s say your father was a multi millionaire and you are homeless. You father dies and leaves you all of his fortune but you live out your life on the streets struggling because you never knew what was rightly yours!

That is where the devil wants us. We have a Heavenly Father and a Savior who gave us power and authority and He wants us to use this power and authority now in this earth to take back from the devil what He has stolen from us.

What has been stolen from you? Health, finances, relationships, peace, joy? Everything the devil has stolen from you, you have a right to, but it is YOUR responsibility to take authority over the enemy and not allow him to steal from you!

Ephesians 1:21-23 tells us All things are under Jesus’ feet. As part of the body of Christ, all things are under your feet, too. But you have to know that and say it and stand on it for it to happen! The same spiritual qualities and the same authority inside Jesus are inside you.

Ephesians 1:3 says you have already been blessed with all spiritual blessings because you are seated with Him in heavenly places. The word blessed is not just a weak, religious statement we say – “oh I am blessed.” To be God-blessed means you are empowered by Almighty God Himself to prosper and succeed. It means you are empowered by the Holy Spirit to be exceedingly happy with life and joy in spite of any circumstances.

Ephesians 2:6 says In Christ you have been raised to the same high place of authority where Jesus sits. He is sitting at the right hand of God!

1 John 4:17 tells you, you are His image expressed to this world. Listen to what it says “In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him.” You and I as children of God are like Jesus!!!

Jesus is not sick, he is not in poverty, he does not have fear, and he is not under pressure, His relationships are not falling apart. His authority, His Name, His position with God- all that has already been given to you and I.

Prayer becomes so uncomplicated when you know who you are in Christ and the authority you have been given because you see yourself as God sees you.

You will know your power and authority, you will know what the Word of God says is yours -now on this earth! Not later, why would we need it later? In Heaven everything is perfect so we don’t need it then; we need it now on this earth!

We have been given Authority in the Name of Jesus
Philippians 2:9-10 says the power behind the Name of Jesus is the power of Almighty God. When you speak the Name of Jesus the power that comes out of your mouth is the power of Almighty God Himself!

John 16:23 what we ask in His Name it is given to us!
The Name of Jesus is still as powerful today as it was when Peter spoke it to the crippled man in Acts 3:1-8!

This Name; the Name of Jesus is a weapon to use to enforce Satan’s defeat. Satan was already defeated by Jesus, Satan knows that. But he is hoping to keep you so confused, fearful, sick, broke, hurt emotionally so that YOU won’t know the power and authority you have! He wants you to look at your circumstance and not trust the Word of God!

He wants to keep you from reading the Bible for yourself because when you do- you are going to learn that there are things promised to you that you were unaware you can have here on this earth!

We must know and understand:

1. Jesus’ Name can do anything He can do. And He is totally unlimited.

2. Revelation 19:13 All the authority of God’s Word is in that Name, the Name of Jesus, and it is yours to use as a new creation in Him!

3. You and I represent Jesus! We can walk in authority in His Name because we are His representatives.

4. You must see yourself in Christ, as part of His Body, with everything under your feet. Instead of ignoring problems, YOU must rise up in your authority and conquer them with the authority He has given you.

5. We are to stand in His victory, use the Word of God to fight the good fight of faith. When you speak the Word in faith, it is the same power as if Almighty God Himself said it, and circumstances will have to come in line.

Do you see that? The power that is in the word of God, and the power and authority you have been given to speak it, is as if God Himself was speaking it, so use the Word of God with faith and authority over your situation. Use the Name of Jesus you have been given to take back what the devil has stolen from you!

Whatever the situation is right now you are in -there is a scripture that covers it. Find it, study the Word and see what has already been promised to you.

Do not wait for your pastor or someone else to read it and tell you what your promises are, read for yourself. If you are just relying on others to tell you what you are promised in the Word – I can tell you, that you are missing out on a lot you have been entitled to, just like the homeless person who did not know they were a multi-millionaire – you have promises in the Word that are yours for the taking, you can have them as you walk in the authority given to you by Jesus himself!
