Thought for Today
Wednesday, October 29, 2014
Exercise your God-given authority. Sometimes the repeated fiery trials of life have a way of intimidating us and, if we are not careful, causing us to forget the true power that lies within each of us. It’s an authority given to us by Jesus Christ and has great potential to overcome the power of the enemy of our souls—if we use it.
Today may you be inspired to tap into and exercise your spiritual authority as you experience this day. May you have spiritual eyesight to see beyond the natural, wisdom and boldness to speak words of faith and call forth those things that are not as though they are, and the blessed assurance that all of heaven is backing you as you do.
“I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. 20 However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” (Luke 10: 19-20)
“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.” 2Timothy 1: 7
