SUNDAY, JANUARY 24
Scripture: 2 Samuel 7:8
Verse 8 says, “Thus says the Lord of hosts, I took you from the sheepfold from following the sheep to be ruler over my people Israel.” God declares that He is the One Who promotes and that He did it by His anointing. The reason why this is the foundation for Kingdom rule is because the covenant of Sure Mercy gives us the authority to rule. Kingdom authority for every believer is in the covenant of Sure Mercy. It is our foundation to rule. We need to know that. We need to understand that. Jesus shed His blood and died so that you and I could have the covenant of Sure Mercy. That covenant of Sure Mercy gives us the authority to rule. When God leads, I can overrule a wicked leader with my prayer. I can ask God to put His foot on an evil leader. My prayer life will overrule one who is haughty and arrogant in the face of God’s plans. Until we began to think like that we are not thinking like King David. Because of his covenant with God no one could be his enemy and live. This is the way we need to think. Because of our covenant with God we have the authority to overrule when God says, pray! If rulers are antichrist in their purpose, their declaration, and their will, they stand to be uprooted, overruled and pulled down. We need to begin to think that way and pray that way. That is a crucial truth!
