TOPIC: MANIFESTING AUTHORITY
SCRIPTURE: And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. – Genesis 1:24
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When the people of God exist below their status in God, it is an abomination.
God lives naturally in the realm of supremacy. All authority in heaven and on earth belongs to Him.
Since we were created in the image of God, we also need authority to be like God.
Authority is needed for the reproduction of God’s character and nature in His people.
The law of creation says that everything reproduces after its kind (Genesis 1:11-12). Therefore, man has no choice but to manifest authority and dominion because man was created in God’s image.
When the people of God exist below their status in life, it is an abomination to creation. Just as a child must resemble any of the parents, we must also resemble God in character. The purpose of authority is for man to reproduce the character and nature of His Maker. The world needs to be brought to know God; they cannot see God, but when they see you, they ought to see God in you.
Authority is needed in order to make impact in life. When you struggle in life, people may not listen to you, but when you are successful, they will listen. Make up your mind today to manifest God’s authority.
Remember this: When the people of God exist below their status in life, it is an abomination.
1. Ask God daily to help you to be a true representation of His image.
2. Start by manifesting His authority over the forces of darkness.
