“Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum. And a certain centurion’s servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die. And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant. And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this: For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue. Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof: Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed. For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.”
Luke 7:1-9 KJV
The authority that God exercised through His Word has and will never end.
Something happens in our lives when we start to live under the authority of the Word.
Honor= Delegation of authority.
Authority= The right to command and be obeyed.
God will always have what He says.
We as believers have to acknowledge and recognize the authority that God has invested in the scriptures.
If I really believe that God has what He says, then I will do what He says.
The enemies oldest tactic is to get me to doubt what God says.
The enemy only has the power over our lives that we give him.
2 Peter 1:16-21.
2 Timothy 3:15-17.
I have to position myself under the Word and make every decision in my life based on the Word.
