Compared to all this cosmic glory, why would you bother with puny, mortal man or be infatuated with Adam’s sons? Yet what honor you have given to men, created only a little lower than Elohim, crowned like kings and queens with glory and magnificence. You have delegated to them mastery over all you have made, making everything subservient to their authority, placing earth itself under the feet of your image-bearers. Psalm 8:4-6 TPT
David understood how God saw him and the authority he was given. How did he know? Because he communed with God as a boy under the stars, singing songs and talking with Him on those lonely nights. He was a friend of God. Acts 13:22 says; ‘I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will.’
As sons and daughters of God, we have been crowned like kings and queens with glory and magnificence to rule and reign in the earth, not cower in fear and intimidation when the enemy threatens us. We instead should be a threat to him! Simply by knowing who we are and the authority we possess, we should be using our words to pull down strongholds the enemy set up in our cities, our neighborhoods and yes, even in our churches.
We bear a striking resemblance to our Father and it’s time we acted accordingly. We must use our words to call peace where only chaos is felt, love where only hatred is spoken. You don’t need a mans permission when you have direct authority in the Spirit realm to do what God has commanded us all to do….reign!
Here’s an idea; let’s walk or drive our neighborhoods and call people back to God. We all came from His Spirit to the earth for purpose, it’s just some of us have lost our way. Call them back! Say, “In the name of Jesus and by His shed blood, I call you back to God. Now I release angels to surround them. Unstop their ears that they may hear Your voice. Open their eyes that they may see the truth and may it set them free!”
I guarantee you one thing, change is on the way! Expect salvation and you will see it. Expect healing to come to your neighbors, and God will give you opportunities to pray for them. When God moved you into that area, it was to rule. Some of us need to get our eyes off what Satan has distracted us with and get our eyes back on our mission.
Father, forgive us for not obeying and doing what you’ve instructed us to do. We yield to Your plans and we surrender our lives to Your mission. Help us to not be intimidated off our territory until we possess it all. It’s in Jesus name and for Your glory, Amen.
