Speaking With Authority

Then they were all amazed,  so that they questioned among themselves,  saying ”What is this? What new doctrine is this? For with authority He commands even the unclean spirits,  and they obey Him.” (Mark 1:27 NKJV)

When Jesus spoke, He did not use knowledge that He gained from man.  Jesus spoke with authority.  He speaks with authority because of who He is.  He is the Word of God in the living flesh.  (John 1:4).  Jesus spoke with authority and therefore, we who serve Him can speak with authority.  I am not saying that we can command unclean spirits or have the wind and sea obey us, however, we can stand with authority and confidence upon all that His word declares.  We can declare with confidence that Christ will never leave us or forsake us.  We can declare with confidence that with God, all things are possible.  We can declare with confidence that all things work together for good to them that love God.  We can declare with confidence that with God on our side, He is more that they that be against us.  We can declare with confidence that I can do all things through Christ which strenghtens me.  We can speak with authority that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God.
