“I bind myself to God’s authority, acknowledge His supremacy and devote myself to His glory and service alone.”
– Psalm 63:11
Recently I have been confessing that I am necessarily connecting myself and every part of my day to God’s authority. It is becoming habit to recognize His sovereignty over everything, both the predictable and unpredictable events that I experience. By putting my thoughts and considerations FIRST on God’s supremacy over it all, I find a place of rest and assurance that both humbles me and builds my spiritual confidence.
Supremacy: Highest in rank or authority; paramount; sovereign; chief; of the highest quality, degree, character, importance, greatest, utmost, final.
As believers, we have the utmost authority within us and around us. All other forms of power (Ephesians 6:12) are forms that we are able to stand against and resist. We can stand firmly in our place wearing the complete armor of God (verse 13), never falling prey to the enemy’s schemes and wiles. There is no principality, power, or ruler of darkness that can stand against the supremacy of God which is a constant, changeless, matchless reality. We engage with this supernatural principle as we speak and confess the Word of Life and rely not on our own abilities but rely on the resurrection power of Jesus Christ that has defeated every foe, led captivity captive, and led away a train of vanquished adversaries (Ephesians 4:8). This fact does not change. Colossians 2:15 says that “God disarmed principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them.” We devote ourselves to God’s glory and service, and we taste and see that He is good, faithful and sure. He is the chief over our physical, mental, emotional and social well-being. Let’s remind the enemy that He and His demons have been publicly triumphed over, disarmed in a bold display! Let’s keep first things first today, and keep God’s paramount authority bound in our hearts and minds. We stay in this place and experience victory through what Jesus accomplished!
