We are a chosen people, from a royal priesthood and the power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead lives in us. We walk in that authority as children of God knowing who we are and who we belong to. God is our father and he calls us his children. He gives us power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over every power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means harm us. (Luke 10:19)
Challenges are a part of this life’s journey and difficulties are along the road to success. God told us so many times in his word to not be afraid. The Psalmist declares that we will not be afraid though the earth be removed and carried into the midst of the sea. (Psalm 46:2)
God is our refuge and fortress and his promise to Joshua was that every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon, ‘I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses.’ (Joshua 1:3)
Whatever God has promised you, wherever he has planted you, take authority there because he has given you the land. God has blessed you with this job, this promotion, this opportunity, this marriage. No man can pluck out of your hands what God has given to you. It belongs to you so take authority where you stand and claim your inheritance.
