Revelation 1:5b-6; To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
I Peter 2:9; 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;
Did you know that no one can change who you are? You will always be you! You have two donors, your father and your mother, their combined contributions created you. Doesn’t matter if you’re adopted, if your parents have passed away, you are you and that cannot be changed. What you go through and are taught, that shapes you into who you think you are, but the real you is determined by the blood that runs through your veins.
By believing in Jesus Christ and what he did for us on the cross, we become Gods very own people. His Spirit is joined with our spirit making us a force to be reckoned with. Nothing that happens in life changes the fact that we are kings and priests in the Kingdom of God. The only thing that keeps us from operating in our full authority is that we listen to the wrong voice who deceives us into thinking we are nothing and no one. It never changes WHO we are, but it makes us ineffective and powerless to operate as we were created to.
What would happen if we took our crowns back? What would happen if we spent time with the King having our minds renewed to the truth of who we are and the authority we have? If we allowed our King to show us the treasures of His Kingdom, the riches of His glory, the creative power in our tongues? The resurrection power we possess? Would we live differently? Would we speak differently? Would we love differently? Would we do as He commanded us, to lay hands on the sick, raise the dead and cast out demons? Would we?
Father, we have believed the lie of our enemy and it has damned us to be powerless and ineffective. We renounce the lie and we take back the authority you gave us. We take back our rights and privileges. We have been placed in right standing with you because of Jesus and the blood He shed, so we take what is rightfully ours. According to Ephesians 6:10 we are strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. So we clothe ourselves for battle, knowing that THIS fight has been won. We take up the whole armor of God, that we may be able to withstand in the evil day we live in, and having done all, to stand. We take back our authority and the power of Your word to wield our sword, the sword of the spirit. We take up our shield of faith to quench every fiery dart satan may throw our way. It’s in Jesus Name and the Blood that is ours to claim, Amen.
