January 11 – We Have Been Authorized To Overcome Through The Power Of Jesus
January 11, 2023
All miracles performed by Jesus Christ, as recorded in the scriptures, are extraordinary: He raised dead persons to live; he healed sick people, and he also fed thousands of people with few pieces of bread and few fishes. However, Christ also performed some other unimaginable miracles that even busted his disciples’ minds: Jesus spoke to wind and storms, and they obeyed him. Bible reported one of the rare moments as written,
“Now it happened, on a certain day, that He got into a boat with His disciples. And He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side of the lake.” And they launched out. But as they sailed He fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water, and were in jeopardy. And they came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Master, Master, we are perishing!” Then He arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water. And they ceased, and there was a calm. But He said to them, “Where is your faith?” And they were afraid, and marveled, saying to one another, “Who can this be? For He commands even the winds and water, and they obey Him!” (Luke 8:22-25).
Jesus Christ has undefeatable power to put both humans and spirits to flight. He retains some supernatural power that no one can withstand. Not only that human conditions submit to Jesus’ authority, but the devil also bows to it! In fact, the scripture stated, “You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble!” (James 2:19). The authority consisted of the name of Jesus Christ put Satan in disarray whenever it is used. However, not only Jesus Christ possesses remarkable unbeatable power, but his followers also share the same quality as well! That is, people who believe in Jesus Christ can exercise the authority of his name to live triumphant lives on earth. Why? Prior to Christ’s ascension to heaven, he shared his unbeatable authority with his believers and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 18:18). Therefore since Christ has prepared a condition of victory for his followers to live overcomers’ lives, Christians should attempt to utilize the opportunity. Believers should no more live in fear, shame, or regret; we must raise our heads to enjoy Christ’s authority and sail unto victory in every situation.
Dear Jesus Christ, I strongly believe that I share the same miracle power with you, and I stand to exercise the authority of your name to proclaim my victory. Therefore, with the strong affirmation, I make the following declarations: I command Satan to get lost from every situation that relates to me. I command all the enemy’s grips to break from my life in the name of Jesus! I proclaim my liberty in the name of Jesus Christ; henceforth, all situations must work for my advantage. My time has come to shout the shout of victory and sing hosanna praises to the name of my God! Thank you, Jesus Christ, for earning me the great victory through the authority of your name. Amen.
