We are not given authority because of our gender, our title, or how much information we have. We are only given authority because we are people that live under the authority of God. The more submitted to God we are the more authority that we carry. When we operate outside of God‘s authority in our life we do not carry the authority of God into any situation. Whether in the city, the country, the family or the company. The key to peace, order, joy, strength, wisdom, and every other desirable attitude and attribute all comes from being a person who lives under the authority of God. It is in this place where attitudes come into subjection to God; where ideas come into subjection to God; where moods come into subjection to God.
We cannot be people that carry authority until we are people that truly live under God‘s authority. We may think we have authority but we don’t because that which has been placed under our care is out of order. We have not submitted completely to God‘s authority. Once we are submitted to God‘s authority completely people will sense that we are those that carry authority because we are those under authority. Authority comes from being submitted to God, when we are submitted to God we exude authority and people, animals,spirits sense it and submit to it. People with authority given to them by God because they are submitted to God are not arrogant their humble. Arrogant people want authority apart from being submitted to God and so they call their title or gender authority because they know they don’t really have authority.
Authority makes people feel safe; authority creates order; authority establishes peace. The way to become a person of authority is to be a person under God’s authority. We need authority, this is why we need a great awakening because we need to submit to God again.we need a revelation that He alone is God and this will bring us in our hearts to our knees in surrender to God. From here everything will change. Nothing else will help us, save us, redeem us, we need a people submitted to God so we can be carriers of authority in the earth.
Matthew 8:5-10 “Jesus entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, imploring Him, and saying, “Lord, my servant is lying paralyzed at home, fearfully tormented.” Jesus *said to him, “I will come and heal him.” But the centurion said, “Lord, I am not worthy for You to come under my roof, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I also am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to this one, ‘Go!’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come!’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this!’ and he does it.” Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled and said to those who were following, “Truly I say to you, I have not found such great faith with anyone in Israel.”
