“God loved the people of this world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who has faith in him will have eternal life and never really die.” [John 3:16 Contemporary English Version]
“The greatest way to show love for friends is to die for them.” [John 15:13 – Contemporary English Version]
As the world celebrates Valentine’s Day this month I encourage you to meditate on a greater love – the love of God, which is greater than any Valentine’s Day. The love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ transcends anything we have done in the past, doing presently or will do in the future. What manner of love is that?
It was His love that caused Jesus, when He was leaving to return to His Father, to give the Twelve Apostles specific instructions. Those same instructions are available to us today. Jesus gave us the authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and the authority to overcome all the power of the enemy. In actuality, Jesus gave us the right to be His power of attorney in this earth realm. Power of attorney means a legal instrument authorizing one to act as the attorney or the agent of the grantor. We can act as God’s agent in the natural and the supernatural world. We have been given the power to effect change in this earth realm. Below is a description of your rights as Power of Attorney.
POWER OF ATTORNEY
Jesus appoints His believers to be His true and lawful attorney-in-fact with full power to carry out those acts specified herein in accordance with any limitations imposed herein.
This power of attorney took effect upon the execution of His death, burial and resurrection and His ascension in heaven and shall remain in effect until His return.
In the event that satan and his cohorts attempt to bring an action against any member of the Body of Christ, such action should be dismissed by Believers, because no weapon formed against any Believer shall not prosper. Jesus nominated Believers as attorney-in-fact to serve as guardians of His Word and to speak it in season and out of season.
Your attorney-in-fact is in effect with full compensation, including fringe benefits.
All power is granted to His Attorney-In-Fact/Believers to be used for His glory, His benefit and on His behalf in accordance with the directions specified in His word.
All power is granted to His Attorney-In-Fact/Believers to lay hands on the sick and watch them recover.
All power is granted to His Attorney-In-Fact/Believers to tread on serpents and scorpions and nothing shall in anywise harm them.
His attorney-in-fact is authorized to take legal action against any person or institution that refuses to honor this power of attorney.
I HEREBY sign my name to this Power of Attorney over 2000 years ago. Jesus.
I encourage you to recognize how powerful the love of God is. Because of that love you are entitled to operate as power of attorney and you are no longer a victim, but you are victorious. I encourage you to remember that you are more than a conqueror in and through Christ Jesus. You are an overcomer. You are the head and not the tail, above only and not beneath.
Prayer: Father, enable me to recognize the power of attorney status that was given me because of Your love for me. Teach me to walk in the fullness of the power that you have given me in Jesus’ Name I pray, amen.
