“For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.” (1 Corinthians 12:12-13, KJV)
It is important for you to know that as a child of God you are a partaker of the divine nature.
The knowledge of God is capable of taking you to a realm of stress-free living.
You are the body of Christ. “Now ye are the body of Christ and members in particular.” (1 Corinthians 12:27, KJV)
Though your enviable position is settled in the spiritual, but you need to realize that you cannot attain an enviable position in the physical without enemy opposition.
“For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.” (1 Corinthians 16:9, KJV)
Adversaries show up to test your composition i.e. what you are made of. Therefore, you must know your authority.
What Kind of Authority?
The authority that a believer carries is a delegated authority.
“God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. 23 And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.” (Ephesians 1:22-23, NLT)
The power given to Jesus is for your benefit as the body.
You are a living wonder, amazement to your generation, a walking talking phenomenon, unstoppable pathfinder, a creation of impact, unbeatable and unstoppable in all your ways…
You are loaded by heaven therefore understand the scriptures correctly…
There is a scripture that many often quote during birthdays—”Your sandals shall be iron and bronze; As your days, so shall your strength be.” (Deuteronomy 33:25, NKJV)
All that is being passed across is that you have the conquering ability to deal with the complexities of each day.
If you take the complexities of each day numerically or arithmetically, for a
1 problem then the 1 power is available to deal with it.
If it is a 20 problem, the 20 power needed to deal with the problem is also available.
The turbulence of the day is actually a prelude to the triumphs available to you.
“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” (1 John 4:4, KJV)
You have overcome them and not you will overcome them.
The Avenue of the Authority
It is the spirit of God that confers authority on “the body” through Christ Jesus.
The Holy Spirit open your eyes to how you can access these blessings. “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,” (Ephesians 1:17-18, KJV)
The ability to get to and also retain your enviable position despite all opposition depends on what you know that you carry. “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.” (Romans 8:11, KJV)
The quickening by the Holy Spirit turns you to a living solution. “But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.” (1 John 2:20, KJV)
Your spiritual weight will determine your stability and success.
What you carry will carry you forward because it has the capability to lead.
“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. “(Romans 8:14, KJV)
How to operate in The Body
- Present your identity
“Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise. But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now. Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman. So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.” (Galatians 4:28-31, KJV)
- Observe the kingdom constitution—Do not violate the rules.
“To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” (Isaiah 8:20, KJV)
- Understand that your authority is given.
“John answered and said, “A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven.” (John 3:27, NKJV)
- Enforce your authority—Stand your ground
“Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.” (1 Samuel 17:45, NKJV)
