Our Focal Scripture speaks of that moment when the noble man ordered the good servant to have authority over ten cities. Before he left to receive a kingdom, all he could offer was a pound to each servant; but after he received a kingdom, he was positioned to distribute cities to his servants. His capacity and what he could offer to men increased after he received a kingdom. He received a kingdom, and became a distributor of cities.
Friend, step out there and take the kingdoms that God is already offering you. Step up your game and become territorial in your pursuit of life. Rise from seeking to have mere businesses and seek to own and control territories. Dare to be a territorial commander. Dare to take charge of your territory by manning the gates of the territory. Displace every satanic agent at the gate and take over as the controller of your territory. Press into higher realms of the Spirit.
The moment the noble man took over as the owner of a kingdom, he transited from offering pounds to offering cities. He moved from giving men money to trade on his behalf to giving men territories to control on his behalf. Hear me as I hear the Lord: as you receive the kingdoms that God is offering you, you will become a distributor of cities. As you rise and take over territories, you will help men to have authority over cities. As you ascend higher in the Spirit, you will draw men to heights.
There are men around you who would have been in charge of cities if only you were bold enough to move from owning pounds to controlling territories. There are men who would have entered into their wealthy place through you, if only you were bold enough to expand your territory. Your generation is waiting earnestly for you to take over the gates of territories so that they can have access. Your generation is waiting for you to share cities.
Think territorially; live territorially; take charge of the kingdoms of our God, and you will appoint men into their cities.
Joshua 1:3 says: “Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.”
Declare With Me: I take new territories; I shall appoint men into their cities, in Jesus’ name!
