Authority

When the enemy fills your mind with words of destruction, confusion, intimidation, degradation, humiliation and likes. You need to take authority over your mind, cleansing  your mind in the precious blood of Jesus.  For the battlefield is in the mind, whatever thoughts or words that is not in alignment with His Word has to be rendered permanently void in the mighty name of Jesus.  Begin to boldly confess Christ Identity in you.

It could be that friends, families or loved ones have spoken negatively over your life.  Consequently this has caused you to loose your voice to speak up or stand up for your right and frustrate, depress, oppress  and terminate every plans and seed sown in your life.  You need to know and understand what the Word says about you.  When you discover Christ Identity and have a divine knowledge of Him, it gives you the ability to confess Christ identity in you, walk boldly and confidently in His image.  Everyday when  I look into the mirror I confess His identity in me.  I speak of His love, faith, power, authority and the fullness of Him.

The power of life and death is in the tongue, the power to build and uproot, establish and destroy.  It is time to confess Christ Identity in you, speak up, speak out and stand out that those around you would know who you are in Christ

So how you use the words that proceeds from your mouth is essential.  Do not let your emotions take control of your thoughts but permit the Holy Spirit full access to your heart.  Meditate on His Word, day and night and let His Word be solidly rooted in your heart.  When His Word becomes a part of you, you begin to declare what the Word of God states over every situation, command your morning and activate the solution  rather than confessing the problem.

Having a divine knowledge of who you in Christ is the key to unleashing your breakthrough.  When you confess Christ Identity in you, the atmosphere in the spirit realm changes to fall into alignment with His will then at the set appointed time it manifests in your life as it has already been established in heaven.  So why don’t you confess Christ identity in you and receive your breakthrough

 

CONFESSION

I publicly announce that Christ lives in me, the hope of glory.  His power is at work within me therefore I have the power and authority to decree a thing and it shall be established.  I boldly confess that I know who I am in Him, I am ROYALTY, QUEEN, His precious daughter whom He finds delight in. I am above and not beneath.  I am fruitful and prosperous.  I am called.  I am chosen and set apart for His works according to His will, plans and purpose.  I command mountains to be moved and they obey me.  I am not afraid of what the enemy throws at me because I have triumphant victory in Christ Jesus.  I am standing and will keep standing through it all.  I know my wait is not in vain and I work according to His set appointed times and seasons.  My faith in God over weighs every fear because of His abundant overflowing love. I choose not to be defeated, I have triumphant victory in Christ Jesus.  I am an overcomer  and have overcome every trial and tribulation.  For every test I boldly confess that I have a testimony for His name to be glorified.  I confidently claim soundness of mind and His perfect love in Christ Jesus.  I am encouraged, bold and fierce as a lion to keep pressing on in pursuit of God.

As Christians who are anointed to pursue, possess and recover all that the Lord has in store for you, it is time to take your position of authority and command your morning, command things that be not as though they were.  To achieve this you need to understand the key steps to taking your position of authority.  Without understanding what you need to do, all your invested time and efforts becomes futile.

All power, dominion and authority belongs to Jesus.  Jesus Christ is the Head of all principalities and powers (Colossians 2:9-10)..  As Sons and Daughters who have inheritances in His Kingdom, we have a mandate to establish His will on earth as it is in Heaven.

KEY STEPS TO TAKING YOUR POSITION OF AUTHORITY

#1. Identify Christ Identity in you

Understanding who He is and who you are in Him enables you to take your position of authority.  Jesus Christ is the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Father of light, alpha and omega and He seated on the throne of majesty, on the right hand of our Heavenly Father in the Heavenly places.

From understanding and discovering more about our Lord Jesus Christ, you know who you are in Christ Jesus.   To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27   

Christ  in you, the hope of glory and the Holy Spirit is a guarantee that He has a dwelling place in you.  His power is at work in you and through you to manifest His power and authority over every situation in your life, marriage, business and environment as it has already been established in heaven.

#2.  Walk in the image and likeness of Christ

We are created in the image and likeness of God, we have His DNA flowing through us (Genesis 1:27).  Therefore as Sons and Daughters of the Most High God, Kings and Queens, Lords and Royal Priesthoods, it is time to enforce your position of authority.

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 1 Peter 2:9

In every situation, I always ask myself what would Jesus had done, how would He have reacted to the scenario.  Consequently I respond in the same manner as Jesus Christ.  It could be difficult sometimes to behave in His likeness because of our sinful nature.

When you decrease so that He increases and permit the Holy Spirit to take full control, you gradually begin to walk like Him, talk with boldness and confidence like Him and be a reflection of His overflowing love.   .

#3.  Put on your royal  garments

We are Royalties who have dominion over our designated territories,  I believe that’s where the word KINGDOM (King Dominion) originated from.

Why don’t you put on your robe of righteousness, crown of His glory, hold your scepter/staff of rulership  as you seat with Jesus Christ on the throne in Heavenly places and enforce His decrees as royalties according to His will, purpose and plans and turning your circumstances around (Psalm 45:6, Isaiah 61:10, Isaiah 62:3, Ephesians 1:20, Revelations 3:21).

 

#4.  Decree a thing

When you decree a thing it shall be established because of the power of life and death in your spoken words.
You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you;  so light will shine on your ways. Job 22:28.  Do not take the words that proceeds from you mouth for granted. Once spoken it can never be retrieved.
The words you confess are sealed and sent forth to establish or uproot, build or destroy as you desire according to His will on earth as it is in Heaven.  Believe with your heart and confess with your mouth by faith and it shall come to pass (Romans 10:10)
With these these key steps to possessing your position of authority you can move mountains, you can destroy the works of the enemy and smash down every stronghold that has hindered you from moving forward.  I can truly testify that your words shall be like a double edged sword that pierces the heart of men and an hammer that breaks rocks into pieces (Hebrews 4:12, Jeremiah 23:29)

 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart Hebrews 4:12

What His Word means to me

When everything else fails     

When all around me is sinking sand          

 Remember the word to Your servant, upon which You have caused me to hope Psalm 119:49.

 For Your word has given me life Psalm 119:50b.     

Your Word is my rock

 Hold me up, and I shall be safe,   

and I shall observe Your statutes continually Psalm 119:117.  

I eat Your Word

How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!  Psalm 119:103 

I drink Your Word                                  

I sleep  with Your Word      

I remember Your name in the night,

O Lord, and I keep Your law Psalm 119:55.

 In my dreams Your Word is there                       

 

Forever, O Lord  Your word is settled in heaven Psalm 119:89.

****Counsel****

His Word is spirit that pierces the heart, guides you in the direction to follow.  His  Word is the spirit of counsel, knowledge, and understanding that restores and mends the broken hearted (Isaiah 11:1-2, Proverbs 1:5, Proverbs 15:22, Proverbs 19:21, Proverbs 20:5)

A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel Proverbs 1:5

The words you speak is life and death, used to build and destroy, unite and divide, encourage and discourage. The Lord has called us as Sons and Daughters who have inheritances in His Kingdom to establish His will on earth as it is in heaven that His will in His fullness be established.  Your kingdom come.  Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10 NKJV   

Just as the rain and snow falls down to the ground so would His word accomplish its’ works, purpose and plans on earth as it is in Heaven (Isaiah 55:10-11).  This is a declaration that as you speak His word and command things that be not as though they were, as you enforce your authority as Kings and Queens in the nations causing light to shine in the midst of darkness, it shall be established according His will, purpose and plans.

“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, 11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it Isaiah 55:10-11 NKJV

Three key things that must happen when His words are decreed:

  1. Not return to Him void:  He is pure, holy and a God of righteousness and justice.  He guards His words ensuring that they are fulfilled.  When you speak His words, its like a double edged sword that proceeds with full force of action and accomplishment.  His word remains the same and never changes (Hebrews 4:12, Hebrews 13:8, Psalm 18:30
  2. His will and heart’s desire is accomplished:  His heart’s desire will surely, with confident assurance of believe and faith in Him through the power of His spirit shall be fulfilled, perfected and completed.  The Lord cherishes His words when spoken by faith and the fullness of His grace (Psalm 105:8).
  3. His word must produce fruit:  His word would produce fruit that would remain and last.  Fruit that would multiply and give bread to the eater and seed to the sower.  His word shall cause an expansion and exponential increase that is beyond our understanding (Genesis 1:28, John 15:16).

He is a covenant keeping God and His love, faithfulness and promises endures forever.  It is time to remind God of His words and acknowledge Him as God the King of Kings, Lord of Lords and the creator of the universe.   Lets enforce His will on earth, in our lives as it is in Heaven.
