Scripture: Ephesians 1:15-19
Perhaps the Apostle Paul prophetically understood that there was an identity theft in operation within the church and as a result, he began to pray for the reversal of that identity theft and for the full measure of God’s revelation of who we are as a King for every believer. A sincere passionate heart-cry unfolds in Ephesians 1:15-19, “Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power.” If we could walk in the fullness of Him who fills all in all, then we would have no problem in taking authority, executing judgment and coming against the enemy expecting the full measure of God’s dominion in manifestation. Can we take that authority? Can we issue spiritual judicial decrees against evil and those who practice it? Or is that a realm that is too fearful for us to walk in? If it is too fearful for us to walk in, it is because our identity has been stolen and we have yet to recover it. Executing justice means appropriately rewarding those who practice evil with the consequences of their actions. Prayer accomplishes this because covenant vengeance belongs to the Lord!
