KEY SCRIPTURE: John 3:31 ” He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all”.
The Lord Jesus came from above and therefore is above all. The word ‘born again’ means to be born from above. We are also above all. Refuse to be dominated by evil.
Our Lord Jesus reigned in life. The word reign comes from the Greek word, which means “To be king”. To reign, therefore means to be a king. We must reign as kings. In this life. Kings rule by commands and decrees. Jesus did the same. He commanded the sea to be still, He commanded the fig tree to die (Mark 11:14) He commanded blind eyes to open. Start doing the same. (Mark 11:23)
How did the Lord Jesus reigned in this life? He knew who He was. He knew what He had. He knew He was righteous and the devil had nothing in Him. John 14:30 reads ” Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me”.
. Jesus knew He was the righteousness of God. You can’t amount to anything special for God if you don’t know the level of investment God has made in you as well as the fact that you are God’s righteousness. (2nd Corinthians 5:21). The Lord knew the Father had given Him all authority over the devil. In His mind Satan was fallen or defeated. Luke 10:18 “And He said unto them I beheld Satan as lightening fall from heaven”.
One other thing the Lord did to establish a very strong faith in the Father was that, He always declared who He was. He made statements like, “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12), I am the way, the truth, and the life (John 14::6). I am the resurrection and the life (John 11:25), and many more. Beloved these declarations established perfectly in His heart and mind who He was. He never encountered the enemy with an inferior attitude. He always felt superior to the enemy. He also saw every condition, no matter the severity of it, as something to be overcome.
We have to learn from His example. We must continually declare what the grace of God has made us. We must declare our superiority over the devil. (Luke 10:19). We must confess we are the righteousness of God and that we have a perfect standing before the Father. A man’s words will bridle his actions James 3:2.
Don’t stop saying who you are. These words which are perfectly in line with the scriptures establishes your superiority over the devil and His demons.
The Lord was a man of prayer.
PRAYER ALWAYS SATURATES YOU WITH THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
I am a joint heir with Jesus. Whatever belongs to the Lord belongs to me. I am superior to the devil. I am born from above and therefore l am above all. I am reigning in life.
Romans 8:17 ” And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together”.
Ephesians 2:10 “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them”.
