Power and Authority

“For He spoke and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast” (Psalm 33:9). There is so much about power and authority in God’s Word. I think it’s really easy for us to forget that sometimes. Think about a policeman who holds up his hand to stop a semi-truck. Honestly, that policeman is no match for that truck! Not even close! But it’s what stands behind the policeman that gives him his authority. The policeman may not be that big or powerful, but the laws of our land say that when he raises his hand for you to stop – you had better stop or suffer the consequences! Think of the power and authority we have when we pray in the Name of Jesus! Mountains move! Demons flee! And the storm become calm!
