What Authority?

I am a lover of words. One of my first thoughts when hearing the word Authority is Author. It reminds me then of this scripture:
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2 KJV
Authority is for our edification, to build us up. He is writing our story. Since He has the power to do that, it is at His discretion to empower us and to make us an authority, a representative of Him. Acts 1:8 speaks of the power that we have to witness for instance. The Lord will give us everything we need to accomplish His will in our lives. We have everything that pertains to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3).

The authority that Jesus had on earth came from God. The power Jesus gives us is through His Spirit. Claim your rightful authority as a child of God. 

1. The name of Jesus gives you authority.
2. You have authority over satan and evil spirits.
3. Authority over the flesh is yours.
4. God gives you authority over your thoughts.

There are others, but these are a good starting place. What God gives you authority over, He can maintain and finish.

Prayer: Lord, You are the authority in my life. Help me to claim my rightful authority as one that belongs to the Most High King in Jesus name I pray, Amen.

Action: Pray for those in authority over you.
