God Given Authority

James 4:7 (AMPC): "So be subject to God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him], and he will flee from you."

When we understand the full force of the power of God that is in us, and ready to back us, our authority becomes a terrifying signal to the devil. He recognises authority; more importantly, he recognises when a believer knows and acts in his authority – and he is powerless against that. 1 John 4:4 says, "Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world." Anything the Word of God says is ours, through the finished work of the cross, we have been given the authority to take a hold of, by faith. So when the devil puts the symptoms of sickness, lack, worry, fear of failure, or any devilish thing on you, don't stand for it. Know you belong to God, not to him. If you have chosen to live according to the life of the Spirit, you can be confident of who you are in Christ. Since you are submitted to God, you can be assured His power that lives inside you, will back the authority He has already given you. That means you can kick the devil right out of your life – and out of everything that concerns you! Stand in your God given authority today and let the Word dictate your future, not the opinion of your defeated foe!
