“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are new” – 2Corinthians 5:17

LIGHT FOR NOW: You are in charge.

A vital fact to be comprehended by believers is that the born again man is not known outside the word. This man is in a world that is higher. This man is in authority; Satan is not this man’s prayer point because where this man is concerned; Satan and his agents are so insignificant. Satan does not wake this man up at twelve midnight for warfare; neither does this man have the consciousness that Satan must be engaged every twelve midnight in serious, brutal prayers. Does this mean this man should not pray? No, this man prays always. This man prays at any time he deems fit but his prayer is not to fight Satan; the intent of his prayer is to God our father.

Prayer is you communicating with your father. It is only when you are ignorant of your authority that you will waste precious time, conversing with the devil. When you know your authority, your arrival will be the disappearance of the devil. It is the ignorance of the believers that make them accredits so much power to Satan. The devil only deals with a believer who doesn’t know who he is; that is why your ignorance is disadvantageous to you and advantageous to the devil. The devil uses your ignorance as a tool to rob you of your realities in Christ. When you accredit so much power to the devil, he uses that your ignorance and maximizes your authority. If there is anything you need to go for, it is knowledge; the knowledge of your identity in Christ. You need to know your authority in Christ.

Paul in Ephesians 1:19-22 explains further on the believer’s authority. From this text, it can be deduced that the power that was wrought in Christ was wrought in the believer. Your authority in Christ is higher than any authority in the world. Hallelujah!!!

INSTRUCTION: You are in authority; think and act like one.

PRAYER: Thank you father for the revelation of my identity in you. I declare that I utilize and maximize all my potentials in Christ and dominate in this world, in Jesus Name. Amen.

QUOTE: Your authority is in the revelation of your identity.
