Knowing & Walking in Your Spiritual Authority – Part VIII

Made in His image

Were we made or created by God? Good question. It was both as you can see in the next scripture.

Genesis 2:7(KJV)
7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

God formed man out of the earth which He had already made and then the creation came when He breathed the breath of life, His very own life, into Adam. Not only did Adam have God’s life in Him but he had been given dominion over the entire earth to do as he pleased except that he was told not to eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, blessing and calamity.

Adam had now become an exact duplicate of God with potential we can only imagine. But we know the rest of the story that he committed high treason and the whole earth was plunged into darkness. But – Jesus!

Yes, Jesus came and redeemed mankind back to God and restored our rightful authority and dominion to us. But it’s only available to those who have made Jesus their Lord and Savior and have received all that He has for us. It’s not automatic. Everything from God, even though it has been given freely by His grace, must be received by faith or we won’t be able to walk in it.

Psalm 115:16 (KJV) 16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.
Hebrews 2:8 (KJV) 8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.

Next we’re going to look at just how we are to use our authority.
