Topic: All Things Are Subject To You [Wednesday, March 22nd]
And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church (Ephesians 1:22).
The Lord Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father, far above all principality, and power, might, dominion, and every name that is named. He occupies the most excellent and exalted throne there is; and the good news is that we’re seated with Him. Ephesians 2:4-6 says, “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.”
God gave Jesus authority over all creation. At the mount of transfiguration, He spoke out of heaven and said, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him” (Matthew 17:5). God commanded all of nature, animate and inanimate, to be subject to Jesus. Together, we’re reigning over all things; over all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named.
In the realm of the spirit, you seat with Christ; you occupy His place of authority, with the power of attorney to use His name. All the powers of darkness respond to, and recognize, your authority in Christ. Therefore, be bold to exercise this dominion today and always. You’re not ordinary. You operate from a higher realm where your words are backed with divine power. Ecclesiastes 8:4 says, “Where the word of a king is, there is power….”
All authority has been vested on you to alter the circumstances of your life and establish the righteousness of God in the earth. Now, about us, John writes, “…as he (Jesus) is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17). Therefore, when you speak, all of creation responds. In His Name, you can break the influence of Satan over men’s lives, and declare that the light of His glorious Gospel shines in their hearts.
Dear Father, I thank you for giving me all authority in heaven and on earth to walk in dominion over all the powers of the enemy. I thank you for bequeathing to me the power of attorney to use the Name of Jesus and utter words of power and effect changes in my life, job, finances, family, health, etc. I speak life to everything that concerns me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
