I believe most, if not all people on the face of the earth are looking for one main thing – POWER OVER CIRCUMSTANCES!
People are constantly trying to gain power in order to live a better life and not become victims of adverse events or situations. Unfortunately, we have attempted this quest through money, sex, religion, philosophies, gangs and clubs, controlling others etc., but none of those things can ultimately succeed.
We do this because deep down we instinctively know that we once had such a power, but somehow lost it.
Well, that’s exactly what happened. Adam and Eve, the first humans, had it all and lost it by disobeying God’s instruction. They had a divine mandate to rule and dominate the earth (Genesis 1:26), but handed their authority over to the fallen angel, satan. From that time on, the ground became cursed – they would have to earn a living by the “sweat of their brow,” because the power through their Holy Spirit connection to God had departed. Mankind would from then on be ruled by an evil dictator, and, in our sinful state, we could do nothing about it.
The good news is – Jesus restored our authority – He paid the price for our sin. Our mandate to reign in life as kings has been returned to us (Romans 5:17).
If Jesus is Lord of your life and you are filled with the Holy Spirit, you are “clothed with POWER from on high” (Luke 24:49, Acts 1:8 AMPLIFIED). You are now a fully-fledged child of God, a citizen and ambassador of the kingdom of heaven with the FULL backing of the government of God.
You already have that miracle-working power inside you. When you speak God’s word, you speak with the authority of a king, because that is who your are, and the WORD of a king is POWER (Ecclesiastes 8:4).
You can heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead and cast out demons (Matthew 10:8). The Lord himself is working with you, confirming His word with signs and wonders following (Mark 16:20)!
Praise God – power over circumstances has been restored to us!
