Operating in Kingdom Authority-I

  Greetings Friends, you are blessed and highly favored always!  Today, I want to invite, inspire, and encourage you to step into your God-given realm of power and authority!

       Everything in God's Kingdom is in direct opposition to the world.  For example:  to live, we first must die to old habits, desires, and our flesh.  To receive, we must first give.  To bring us out, God brings us in- out of the shadows, to be a lamp and a light to the world.  
 
     However, once you begin to learn how Kingdom principles operate, you will no longer desire things of this world.  You will understand that there are no limits to His love, His grace, and His abundance. Are you submitted to the laws of the world or to the leadership and guidance of your heavenly Father?
 
     God wants you and me to triumph in the essence of who we are by realizing whose we are.  When you realize your advantages and privileges as part of the "God Class" or born again believers,  you will no longer hold hands with mediocrity, nor will you bow down to impoverishment and insufficiency.  [Jeremiah 29:11] says it best, "For I know the thoughts I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope."  NKJV
 
     As children of God, we have the ability to operate in Kingdom authority.  We reign over situations and circumstances with our words.  When we speak God's Word in faith, we release supernatural power over natural conditions and things surrender to our words.
 
     God said, "Let there be light!"  He didn't complain about what the devil had done.  Jesus spoke to the fig tree, and the disciples were shocked that it died like it was supposed to do.  [Mark 11:24] tells us to speak to the mountain.  Jesus spoke to  the mountain of sickness for so many including the blind, the lame, the demon possessed, the hungry, those in captivity, and even the dead were restored to life.  He then reminded us that greater things shall we do during our lifetime.
 
     We operate in kingdom authority when we release  faith-filled words.  Words of faith will voice print the atmosphere  and change your house, your work place, and even your neighborhood.  Your words hold onto space until they are acted upon either positively or negatively.  What you speak to a situation should be what you want to happen because molecules hold memories until words are activated. 
 
     God has delegated authority to believers to reign as kings over this earthly realm.  As believers, we should use this time sensitive authority from God to defeat Satan and win souls to the Kingdom. You have authority to command circumstances to change, to command financial security, to command sickness to leave your body because it doesn't belong 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]
 
     Spiritual authority has been designated to every believer.  From a Kingdom perspective, words are weapons.  Let us not ignore our right to operate in Kingdom authority by utilizing faith-filled words that bless others as well as ourselves. Amen!
