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)
