Oh no, please tell me this isn’t happening! Suddenly out of nowhere it strikes—a full blown crisis when you least expect it! Things were going great, but all the while satan was scheming with a plan to hit you where you’re most vulnerable.
Have you been there . . . so paralyzed with fear that you couldn’t even pray? Or maybe you were so overwhelmed with doubts and feelings of insecurity that you weren’t even sure if your prayers were worthy enough to be heard. You’re not worthy! I’m not worthy! Even the saintliest person is a sinner without Christ!
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Wait! Does the Bible really say that I am seated in heavenly places with Christ?
Yes, it most certainly does! If you are covered in the blood of Christ, then every privilege that belongs to Christ now belongs to you.
If Jesus is your everything and your life is totally surrendered to Him, then all the authority and power that’s in Christ is now in you. If you have faith in God and don’t doubt, you can say to the mountain be removed, and it will move (Mark 11:22-23).
You don’t have to fear the devil! Walk in the Spirit and every demon will scatter. You don’t have to struggle through those trials anymore! Walk triumphantly through each one knowing that the God of all Heaven has guaranteed your victory. When you pray, all Heaven moves out of respect for the relationship you have with God through Jesus Christ.
You have been granted the authority of Christ, but it’s not just for your benefit! Stay tuned to this podcast episode if you want to know more about how and why you have the authority of Christ.
