Power of Attorney

This blog came out of a conversation that I had with my husband today. We were sitting around talking as we often do. As we were talking Holy Spirit showed up and got involved in our conversation. Let me pause to say: I LOVE THAT! We gave Him an open invitation in our home. He’s always welcome. Anyway, He began to speak to us about our “Authority as Believers”

He gave this example: My husband when he was younger had power of attorney over his grandfather. Which meant that he could act as his grandfathers representative, people would see my husband physically but he was acting on the behalf of his grandfather. His grandfather did not have to present during these times. He had been given legal authority to use his grandfathers name. (Paying bills, going to the bank; withdrawing money/depositing money.) At the end of whatever business transaction he would sign it in his grandfathers name. Not his own.

That’s what Jesus did for us. We have the legal right to use the name of Jesus and when we do the enemy see’s Jesus not us!
My God!
The enemy has no power over us. None! Zip! Zero!
When we stand in faith and say, “satan I rebuke you, In the name and authority of Jesus Christ” We use our authority. We exercise our authority. Jesus, Himself backs up our words. Heaven backs us. Angels go to work to bring that word to pass.

We as born again believers are not defeated. But, you have to know it. You have to believe it. Is the enemy in your finances? Is he in your marriage? Your job? Your children? Is he active in any area of your life? If so he is out of order. It is unlawful and illegal.
Do you understand what I am saying to you? Use your authority. You have power of attorney.

John 14:12
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

John 14:13
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

John 14:14
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

John 15:7
If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

John 15:16
Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain:that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

John 16:23
And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.

Luke 9:1
Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.

Luke 10:17
And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.

Luke 10:19
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy:and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Luke 11:9
And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

Matthew 28:18
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

Matthew 28:19
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Mark 13:34
For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.

Mark 16:17
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;



Fear is a spirit

The other morning I was up praying the 4th watch as I have been for awhile now. As I was interceding for someone, I saw something move behind my husbands stereo. It peeped its head out and then darted back the other way. I immediately got scared. I don’t do creepy things.

I went and woke up my husband. The whole time this “distraction” interrupted my prayer time. He got up but he wasn’t a happy camper. Mind you, it was about 4:15 in the morning. I told him that I saw something. He looked behind the stereo; there was nothing there. Grabbed the flash light. He couldn’t find anything. At this point now he’s really agitated. I really believe he thought I was seeing something.

He told me to go in the bedroom and pray and that he would just get on the couch. Done deal right? Not for me! I know what I saw even though I don’t know what it was.
Fear had come in!!!! Fear tolerated is faith contaminated. Remember I’ve been up interceding and waring in prayer.

Last night, I didn’t go in the living room- I stayed in the bedroom and kneeled down beside my bed. That’s not my secret place. That’s not where I’m supposed to be for 4th watch prayer.
When I was getting up I glanced in the kitchen and standing on my rug by my stove was a mouse. ( I think) it must have seen me too because it took off running behind my refrigerator.

Of course I woke my husband up and told him. He looked and didn’t see it but this time he knew I really had seen something. He said I’ll bring something home tomorrow.
I’m like tomorrow, NO, I need you to get up tear this house apart and find whatever that is.
But instead he rolled back over and went to sleep. I was done!!!!

Prayer time was through, remember I’ve been interceding. Birthing things in the spirit.
My husband gets up and is getting ready for work, I’m peeping in the kitchen. He notices it and says, “you can’t be in fear, it can’t hurt you- it’s more afraid of you than you are of it” He said its just like the devil, it’ll run if you go near it.
I heard him but I was IN FEAR. I asked him to pray with me before he left.

Holy Spirit spoke through him and let me know that the enemy was using that against me to STOP me from praying. That blew my mind, warfare came in the form of a mouse.
I didn’t see that coming. I had gotten used to the enemies full out blatant attacks. This time he came at me another way.

When my husband left for work, I couldn’t sleep. I was still in fear.
Holy Spirit gave me:
Genesis 1:26
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

I prayed and asserted my proper authority. But I still couldn’t sleep. The phone rung and it was my husband. He said, ” the Holy Spirit told me to tell you, that’s your house, take authority”!!!!
I then went to: Matthew 18:18 and began to pray accordingly.

Matthew 18:18
Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven:and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

So Father I bind the spirit of fear and I cast it out in the name of Jesus
And I loose perfect love according to

1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear:because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

I began to decree and declare in the name and the authority of The Lord Jesus Christ:
2 Timothy 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
I decree and declare in the name and the authority of The Lord Jesus Christ: that I have power, love and a sound mind.

The enemy will use anything to shut you up when you’re taking territory for The Kingdom, he will come at you in different ways. I must have really been shaking realms and dimensions for him to come at me like this. Strongholds, chains are being broken, yolks are being destroyed!!!!

Fear tolerated is faith contaminated. Had I allowed fear to set up shop my prayers wouldn’t have been effective. And the devil is a lie. I’m going to stay on the wall. Watching and praying. Crying loud and sparing not!!!


Suit up

When you got dressed this morning did you forget something? Go ahead. Check… Shoes, socks, belt etc….Are you dressed in the spirit? For so many of us we over look this very important instruction. We walk around literally spiritually naked.

Ephesians 6:10
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Ephesians 6:11
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

Ephesians 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Ephesians 6:13
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Ephesians 6:14
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

Ephesians 6:15
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

Ephesians 6:16
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

And don’t forget too:
Ephesians 6:18
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Today right now, lets get dressed in the spirit:

Audibly. Out loud lets do this together.
Father today I clothe myself so therefore I now put on the garment of praise. I put on the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth, the shoes of peace, I take up the shield of faith and the sword of the spirit which is the word of God. Father I also put on the garment of praise.

Let’s make this a daily habit. Let’s do this over ourselves, our families, our husbands, our children, our dogs, cats everything.

I speak Blessings to you today.
