We already have authority we just need to exercise it

John 16:33 (NIV)33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” 

We can go to church every day but that does not mean we are behaving behind closed doors.  We are to have victory in every area of life.  Seems like we are always under attack.  The bible gives us some pretty amazing promises for our lives.  We need to start believing what we read.  God can do great things through us. 

Having authority of the Devil does not mean we will never have any problems.  Having authority over the Devil is not just about yelling at Him but it is about learning to be victorious in the middle of bad situations in life.  We are going to have troubles in life but it is important to know we already have the victory in our troubles because we have a God who is bigger than our problems.   

We have power through faith – we just need to remember how to use our faith to release that power we have against bad things that come into our life.  The God in us is greater than any evil thing in this world that will come against us in life. 

We already have the victory we just need to remember who we are in Christ and exercise that victory. 

Romans 8:37 (AMP)37 Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors [a]and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
