Authority in Christ

August 9th, 2007

The other day I was thinking of how when we pray for breakthrough and things come up against us. By this I mean the powers that Ephesians chapter six talks about (Click here to read on BibleGateway.com)

As I dwelt on this I started to think about the authority we have as Christians. I thought about how the Bible talks about Jesus having all authority on heaven and earth (Matthew 28:18) and how as Christians Christ lives in us. So in saying that we have Christ’s authority to take a stand.

As I was working through this I asked God to help me understand this more. He gave me a picture of me standing with all of heaven standing behind me. Jesus was next to me and legions upon legions of mighty Angels were standing behind me backing me up. This thought blew my mind. It was almost like if you want to mess with me, you have to take on these guys too!

Next time things come against you and try to derail your plans or the plans of your church. Just remember you have all of heaven standing in your corner. The powers are not just messing with you, they are messing with all of your “mates” as well.

Stand firm!

God Bless,
