You Have Authority Over This World

A Truth to Live – God has transferred His eternal authority to those who follow Him. From now on I will live in the eternal destiny which God has laid out for me.  I will walk in His spiritual authority and share the simple, but powerful Good News with my world. I know this means much more than reciting words – I must also be His hands and feet.  

Scripture – “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20

Prayer – Help me, Lord, and grant me the strength to obey You and teach others to do the same.  Even when I feel hesitant or alone in doing Your will, I will remember that Your very presence is with me when I walk according to Your Word.  

Thank You, God. You are empowering me today to live beyond myself.  You want me to be involved in the BIG plan of the ages – taking Your Good News to every person in every community on earth.  Show me today how to take the first steps in Your grand purposes! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
