Jeremiah 1:9-10 ERV; Then the Lord reached out with his hand and touched my mouth. He said to me, “Jeremiah, I am putting my words in your mouth. Today I have put you in charge of nations and kingdoms. You will pull up and tear down. You will destroy and overthrow. You will build up and plant.”
Today, I’d like to continue by showing you that God was not just talking about Jeremiah. Let’s look at Genesis 1:28, God blessed them and said to them, “Have many children. Fill the earth and take control of it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the air. Rule over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
So from the very beginning, Gods intentions were for us to rule and reign over every living thing. How do we do that? What was the one thing God used to create? His Words. Now, go back up and read what God said to Jeremiah. He didn’t set him up with a throne to rule in the natural, He set him up with His Word and put him in charge of nations and kingdoms.
Wait! Take a moment and allow the Holy Spirit to reveal His purpose to you. II Corinthians 10:4-5 GW says, “The weapons we use in our fight are not made by humans. Rather, they are powerful weapons from God. With them we destroy people’s defenses, that is, their arguments and all their intellectual arrogance that oppose the knowledge of God. We take every thought captive so that it is obedient to Christ.”
Could it be that the reason we exist is to take territories in the spirit realm? Could it be that most of this is done in the secret place, our prayer closet? Out of sight and sound of human ear? Where we take His Word which is in us to tear down and pull up, to destroy and overthrow, build up and plant? Victory’s won in this arena affect the outcome of peace in our community and the overthrow of fear, doubt and unbelief.
Father, You have surely placed Your Word in our heart that we might know You and the power of Your might. You did not place us here as powerless, wimpy sons and daughters, but as mighty soldiers in a battle we cannot see with mighty weapons that pull down strongholds. Put a watch guard on our lips and keep us from speaking what we see in the natural. Help us to say what You say and go where You tell us to go. We don’t need to understand, we will trust in You and be doers, not just hearers. It’s in Jesus name and for Your glory. Amen
