And have made us kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign on the earth.” Revelation 5:10
According to Revelation 5:10; we have been made Kings, Queens and Priest unto God and our domain as God-ordained authority is the earth. Psalm 115:16 says, “The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord's; but the earth He has given to the children of men”. God has given you the authority to reign on earth. Everywhere the soles of your feet thread, you have God’s full authority to reign and dominate there (Deuteronomy 11: 24). But a king cannot successfully reign in his domain without power. “For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power”. 1 Corinthians 4:20. A king that lacks power will be easily conquered by the enemy.
Authority and power is needed for the prosperity and preservation of any kingdom. Likewise, God didn’t just give you a domain, He also gave you the power that you need to reign successfully - unhindered and unmolested. Luke 10: 19 says, “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you”. As God’s authority on earth, you do not have to be harassed by the troubles of this world, you have the power to silence the raging storms of life and the authority to take charge of any situation. Mark 11: 12-14, 20-24, Mark 4: 35-41.
Ecclesiastes 8: 4 says; “Where the word of a king is, there is power; and who may say to him, "What are you doing?". One of the ways God has ordained for you to reign on earth is through the power of your mouth– YOUR WORDS. You have been given a powerful mouth to determine the happenings around you, to create the future you desire and to also nullify negative counsels and situations. Proverbs 16: 10 says, “Divination is on the lips of the king; His mouth must not transgress in judgment”. In this regard, you must be careful not to speak carelessly, because the spiritual realm controls the physical realm. Every physical manifestation was first settled in the spiritual realm. “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ”. 2 Cor. 10:3-5.
Please, understand that there is incredible power in your mouth. The mouth that God has given you is a mouth full of wisdom and irresistible might. Your Lord has given you “a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist” (Luke 21: 15). No adversary from the pit of hell can withstand the decrees and proclamations that you utter from your lips. When a king makes a decree, every one bows to it and no one queries his pronouncements. Psalm 81:10 - I am the Lord your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt; Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
Don’t be silent concerning your life, open your mouth wide, and start creating the future you desire for your life, marriage, children, career and so forth. Fill the blanks of life with the promises of God’s word. Start speaking to every mountain in your life. They will move. “You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you; so light will shine on your ways”. Job 22: 28. Start using your God given weapon of authority-your mouth. A close mouth leads to a close destiny. A king that refuses to use is authority will lose his authority.
Proverbs 18: 21 says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit”. Simply put, as God’s authority, you should not say what you don’t want. Speak faith, not fear. Speak forth your desires, not your dreads!
