TEXT: JEREMIAH 1:10
See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plantâ€ (Jeremiah 1:10).
It was C. H. Spurgeon who said that, â€œMental power may gather a large congregation, but only spiritual power will save souls. What we need is spiritual power.â€ Jeremiah was divinely anointed and called by God from birth. When it was time to start the ministry, he received Godâ€™s assurance. He depended on Godâ€™s power and authority and he prospered. God is calling multitudes from a life of sinfulness to salvation, consecration, and purity. Once you are set apart (like Samson, Samuel, Jeremiah, John the Baptist, Jesus Christ and Paul), then pray for the Holy Ghost baptism for power to fulfil your mission. When you step out by faith in the authority of God’s Word through the power of the Holy Spirit, you will succeed. God sent Jeremiah to the children of Israel and has sent all believers to the whole world today. Do Godâ€™s work where you are until the Spirit sends you elsewhere. When he calls, no matter what excuses we may have, He will back you up to succeed. Use the authority God has given to you.
Challenge: Exercise your power and dominion over Satanâ€™s kingdom today.
Prayer: My God, help me to use well the authority I have.
Quote: Use the authority God has given to you.
