My boss and I have a good working relationship. I have authority to do things for her. I haven’t taken authority on my own initiative. It’s been given to me by her. Without discussions with her I wouldn’t know what she has decided about subjects that matter at work, so I would not be able to speak or take action. If I did I would be acting on my own behalf. If I am asked something and I don’t know what her response would be I wait until I get her thoughts on it before I answer. You could say I am a liaison between her and the public.
In the natural we follow our bosses, our spouses, and others who are in authority over us. We don’t just do our own thing. In the spiritual we follow the Lord, who is in authority over us. We don’t just do our own thing. We have His Spirit within us to give us insight and we have the Word of God, not just to study, but to take it in and live it out.
But amazingly God has given us His authority! We don’t have our own opinions, we get to live out the opinions of the Father! We have been handed much in Kingdom living.
Oh beloved, do you know how to live under the authority of the Most High God? And do you know your authority in Him? He says much to you about everything for life and godliness through His Word. Do you talk to the Father about life? He wants to give you His Authority to walk in this world with wisdom, power and love! You don’t have to live a meager life of fear and worry.
God has given you much in the Kingdom! You are indeed royalty. You’ve been commissioned from the THRONE ROOM of The Only Living God! Rejoice in His truth and know you are loved by Him always. You don’t have to worry if you can be used of God for anything or if you can speak on His behalf. He opens doors no man can close. He gives you authority to walk in faith! He gives you authority to live in peace! He has given you authority to pour out His wisdom to others! He has given you authority to walk under the anointing through His Spirit! He’s looking for you to move in His authority because He knows you and you know Him. Those who know Him will trust Him. You don’t have to worry that you aren’t what the world calls powerful. Because your inner being is full of authority and you are appointed to walk in His plan, deliver His message and most of all to walk in Love.
God loves you and He’s for you. The more you relax your own need to be in charge and walk under His authority, the more you will realize that amazing love and care He has for you. Rejoice that the enemy has no hold on you, sin has no dominion over you and the enemy retreats because you walk in the power of the Only Living God under His dominion always!
