The children of Israel crossing the Red Sea is one of my favourite bible stories. I love the climax of the story where the Israelites were at the edge of the sea with nowhere to go. Pharaoh and his army were in pursuit behind them and they seemed cornered. “For Pharaoh will say of the people of Israel, ‘They are wandering in the land; the wilderness has shut them in’” (Exodus 14:3). I am tickled when someone speaks with authority concerning matters that are completely outside of their control. Have you ever had a Manager, a Teacher or someone in authority make a pronouncement over your life, which you know that they do not have the authority to determine?
The reality is that we live in a realm where there are spheres of human authority that oversee organisations. As children of God, we are connected to a system of government and authority which transcends this world system. Anything that a person in authority on this earth speaks about a child of God which is contrary to the word, can be cancelled. We don’t have to challenge them verbally or get into a debate or argument. All we have to do is to go to God in prayer and renounce and cancel anything spoken which is contrary to what God says.
We have the authority to cancel what a medical professional says and declare what the word says about our bodies. A parent can cancel the negative declaration from a Teacher over their child. Anyone can cancel a Manager’s pronouncement that they will loose their job. If you know that you have been sent to that company for a specific time and season, then no person in authority can end your contract before time. With all due respect, listen to what those in authority have to say. Thank them for their feedback and opinions and if appropriate, let them know that you are a child of God and your destiny is in the hands of God.
Make sure that you know what the word says concerning your situation. Then pray the word and declare what God says. God’s word cannot go back to him void and shall accomplish what it has purposed. Speak the word and let the word light your darkness.
