We often associate authority with Royalty. Indeed, we ARE Royalty! Unfortunately, we’ve been programmed by our society, by our surroundings, by what we see and hear on television, radio and general advertising to see ourselves in an unfavorable light, and we fall into the trap of thinking of ourselves in the light of something considerably less than what God has designed us to be.
Watching God move in such spectacular ways in the past days has only reinforced the benefits of God’s people ruling and reigning through prayer, fasting, decrees, declarations and exercising the authority of the Lord. This is a normal part of our existence as committed believers. You understand, of course, that commitment demands that we respond proactively to every Word of the Lord given to us.
As we continue to move into this new year, and approach the swearing-in ceremony for President Trump’s second term, opposition against him and the plans of the Lord have continued unabated. That means that we have an increased responsibility to be lifting him before the Lord, along with his family, and his staff and cabinet. This is a practical dimension for us to exercise ruling and reigning!
Before we took our break for Christmas, we were talking about the significance of righteous judgment. I want to pick up on that again as we begin the new year. 2021 is going to be a year for the record books! I know that some of the first four years of the Trump administration have been real barn-burners but get ready for some amazing events this coming year!
