Spiritual Warfare: 'Christians Have Authority, So USE It'

God's Power for Our Battles — Thursday, November 24, 2022

“I assure you and most solemnly say to you, whatever you bind [forbid, declare to be improper and unlawful] on earth shall have [already] been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose [permit, declare lawful] on earth shall have [already] been loosed in heaven.” Matthew 18:18 AMP
— Matthew 18:18 AMP

Today's Prayer

Lord, I haven’t really understood my authority as a child of God. Help me to realize the power of my position in the spiritual realm and learn to properly exercise that power so people around me can be free from the grip of sin and death on their lives. Help those who hear my powerful words to have faith in Your ability to change their reality and free them forever through an ongoing personal relationship with Your Son Jesus and through obedient response to Your commands. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
