“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him. The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints. And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power.” – Ephesians 1:17-19

LIGHT FOR THE NOW: Your knowledge of Christ determines the level of your authority in life.

God created the earth and all the things in it. He gave Adam dominion over all the works of his hands. In other words, Adam became the god of this world. Adam being a free moral agent then decided to sell out this dominion given him by God to Satan (darkness). He had the freedom and choice to choose light over darkness but he went for darkness. Satan however had the right to rule over this world till we became new creations and got into the body of Christ according to God’s predestined ordinances as can be seen in Colossians 1:12-13 “Giving thanks unto the father who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the son he loves”. This is the very reason why Satan has no right or authority whatsoever to rule over us. Yet the average Christian puts more faith in Satan’s authority than in God’s.

The Bible in its entirety focuses more on the “second man” which in 1Corinthians 15:45 is called the “last man” (Jesus Christ) than the first man (Adam) yet some Christians focus more on the first man (Adam) than the last man (Jesus). Hence, their reason for always praying the forgiveness prayer. Believers should make Jesus Christ their focal point because all Jesus did; he did for us and not for himself. 1Corinthians 6:17 reads “But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit” you and Christ are one. Glory!

INSTRUCTION: Your doing is a function of your knowing.

CONFESSION: I decree that i can do all things through the power of God which is in me.

QUOTE: As a believer, you are the exact image of God.
