IT SHALL BE DONE
When Jesus came to this earth, He came as the Son of God, with power and authority. Where did He get it? He received it from His Father, God. Do you think that God would send His Son into this world to face the devil without the ability to achieve all that He had sent Him to accomplish? IT SHALL BE DONE
God sent Jesus here for a divine purpose to destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8). What would you think of a God Who knew the strength of the enemy and did not give His Son the necessary weapons to defeat the enemy’s power? IT SHALL BE DONE
Jesus said: “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth” (Matthew 28:18). He recognized that the Father had given Him the authority. Jesus gave His own testimony in the synagogue when He opened the Book of the prophet Esaias and read:
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. (Luke 4:18)
Now, do you think that same Jesus, the Son of God, would send you, would send me, to face this same devil without power and without authority? No! When Jesus sent out His disciples, He told them as His Father had sent Him, with all authority, even now He was sending them:
And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. (Matthew 10:1)
He not only commissioned them to preach that the Kingdom of Heaven was at hand, but also to…
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. (Matthew 10:8)
In Matthew 18:18-19 He put powerful weapons into the hands of believers with these words:
…Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
You have powerful spiritual weapons in your hands to face the battles of life today. Be sure to use them!
Make this declaration:
|I have powerful spiritual weapons in my hands to face the battles of life today. I will use them with God-given authority.|
