Let's Use Our Authority

And the Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward. But lift up your rod and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it.”  Exodus 14:15-16

One thing the body of Christ is doing is praying. But so many of us are praying desperate prayers. We are praying, “God, help. God, please. God, do something about my problem.
All of us at one time or another have prayed this way. But God does not want us to pray pleading prayers all the time. He wants you to use the authority He has given you to pray powerful prayers, to boldly command and to “stretch out our hand” and see miracles happen in our lives.

You remember when Moses stood before the Red Sea with Pharaoh’s army pursuing them. The Bible tells us that he cried out to God. But then, God spoke to him saying, “Why do you cry to Me?” Why did God respond to Moses that way?
You see, there is a time for you to cry out to God and there is a time for you to use your authority. God told Moses, “Tell the children of Israel to go forward. But lift up your rod and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it.”

The ROD you have today is the Name of Jesus. As you command in Jesus’ Name, your SEA will open, and you will go forth on dry ground through the midst of your problem.
I want you to notice what Jesus DID NOT say in Matthew 10:8. He did not say, “Go and pray for the sick”. He said, “Go and heal the sick”. It’s important to know that Jesus never prayed for the sick. What he always did was speak to the sickness with His authority. So, we need to stop pleading and asking all the time and start using the authority you have in Christ.

Also notice what Jesus told the church. He said “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. GO YE THEREFORE…” (Matthew 28:18-19). Friends, God wants you to go and use the authority that He has given you. And as you go, miracles will surely flow in your life. What good news, Praise God forever.
