Problems with Authority Begin and End with God
Matthew 28:18 (KJB) And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
A lasting solution for any problems with authority always begins and ends with God for He is the ultimate authority over all things, both of a physical or spiritual nature.
Think about the powerful statement God introduces in many scriptures, including this verse:
“All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth…”
God has not just some power, but ALL power.
Doesn’t it make sense that a man or woman would choose to be subject to the supernatural power of God who ultimately has the control of everything that happens on this earth and in the eternal realm? He has the power to lift a man up or knock him down. He has the power to destroy a man or safeguard him forever. He has the power to create and destroy both creatures and creation.
Yes, all things, whether they are found on this earth or in heaven rest in the power and presence of God. Concerning life and death (Revelation 1:18), or in the creation of all things (John 1:1-3). A man, whether he be saved or lost, cannot control anything on his own recognizance or power. A man is always subject to the will and way of God.
Any problems a man faces concerning authority always stem from either a missing or troubled relationship with God. A spiritually thriving personal relationship with God always produces a proper view and estimation of both a man and the authority of God inside softened hearts.
All power belongs to God and every man, woman, and child is either spiritually receptive and reverent, or he chooses to be ignorant of His presence and supernatural will and way, both on this earth and in the eternal realm.
