2 Corinthians 5:19
That is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting people’s sins against them [but canceling them]. And He has committed to us the message of reconciliation [that is, restoration to favor with God].
Did you know that our presence is so significant that God is literally pleading with men through us to come to Him? Before we have even said a word, we are God’s message in human form. Just as Jesus was the expression of the Godhead in the Earth, as He is, so are we in this world! (1 John 4:17)
When you and I show up, we are Heaven’s highest-ranking official on the scene. The devil thought he was in charge, but when we come on the scene, the power just switched. Christians are busy talking about all the things that the devil is doing to them, but they have forgotten that he has to yield their command. A higher-ranking official has shown up.
Satan thinks he can hold onto stuff that belongs to us according to the New Covenant, but when a diplomat from the government of Heaven shows up, he cannot hold onto things any more. He thought he was the strong man, keeping our goods, but if a stronger one appears, he is outclassed.
Luke 11:20-22 says this, “But if I cast out demons with the finger of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you. When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are in peace. But when a stronger than he comes upon him and overcomes him, he takes from him all his armor in which he trusted and divides his spoils.”
You and I are in the position of the stronger one. We are not the ones having our goods stolen by the devil; we are the ones for see the Kingdom of God come because we are there. Say it right now, “I am Heaven’s highest-ranking official in my situation.”
If you work in the school, tell them, “Because I showed up, no evil shall befall you. No crazy stuff is going to happen up in here.”
That is what the Apostle Paul told them all when he was on the ship in the midst of a storm. “An angel of the Lord stood by me…. None of you are going to lose your life because I am here. You may not serve the God I serve, but because of me, you are saved.”
Make sure you go about your business today working as though God Himself is there. Parent like God Himself is parenting. Love like God Himself is loving through you. Straighten up because you represent the highest of all. He is higher than anything that has been threatening you.
God is going to surprise you with His goodness because you have favor with Him. You will laugh at the thing that is making you cry right now. You are an ambassador of His Kingdom, and He will surely show Himself strong in and through and for you!
Heavenly Father, you are the Lord of all. You are the Most High God and I am full of your spirit. I am an ambassador of the Kingdom of God and I represent Heavenly government in the Earth.
I refuse to fear, to cry or to be depressed today. I stake my claim to the spoils of war, because when I fight, I win. I am Heaven’s highest ranking official in my situation today and I declare that the Kingdom of God is coming and the will of God is being done in my life, in Jesus’ name!
