All Power Belong To Christ
Focus: Matthew 28:18 - KJV
18. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Before Jesus came into the world as the son of man, many prophets and scriptural thinkers before Him had prophesied and foretold His coming. They spoke about a prophet in the likeness of Moses; the seed of the woman; the son of David; to be born in Bethlehem; to be from Nazareth and so on. Most did not envisage that this Messiah would come as the Son of God and neither do they understand the import of that expression. Hence, when the King of glory eventually came to earth in the flesh, it was difficult to appreciate the fact that such a humble, easy going preacher who had put His glory aside to be considered equal with His human creature, though being Himself equal with God, just so that the power over the earth which had been unwittingly handed to Lucifer on a platter of gold may be retrieved back for the use of man. When therefore, the Lord Jesus Christ achieved the fete for which He became man by His death and resurrection, He made it clear that all power in all realms were from then in His care. And the Apostle Paul later affirmed that He has been given a name above every other name so that at the mention of the name of Jesus Christ, all knees should bow. It does not therefore matter the feign of your enemy to possess power, when you are aware of the place where power lies, you will refuse to be tormented or traumatized by possessors of powerless power.
Unless the Lord says a thing, anyone asserting it is powerless regarding it. This is enough to grant confidence to a user of this Guide that unless the Lord Jesus Christ permits it, no one at all can assert power over you. As believers in the power of the Christ therefore, if we do not accept an assertion or position being peddled against us, we can invoke the power of the Christ to negate that of the enemy and institute the plans of God instead.
SOLUTION: The name of Jesus sends jitters into the midst of the wielders of the powers of darkness. Start employing the use of that name from today and see the difference in your circumstance. He said hitherto have you asked nothing in my name; ask that your joy may be full. It is time to put the name to good use.
Father, let the name of Jesus work greater wonders in my life from now on in Jesus’ name. Let every knee bow and yield to me whenever I put the name of Jesus to use and make me overcome all the plans of the enemy from today in Jesus’ name. Pray in Jesus’ name that your joy may be full. He has all the power in all the realms.
