Take Back Your Power To Conquer
“I have given you authority…over all the power of the enemy.”
–Luke 10:19 (ESV)
When you can’t pay your bills; creditors are calling; or you’re facing dwindling income, the loss of a job, car or home, one thing is sure: You feel powerless.
When you’re distracted with the immense pressure that comes from an extreme financial challenge, it’s easy to forget who you are and the power and authority that’s been given to you. All you can think about is, How am I going to get out of this?
Whatever your situation today—whether it’s mounting debt, dwindling income, the loss of a job or unexpected expenses—God wants to deliver you and restore the years that the locusts have eaten (Joel 2:25).
His will is always for you to live an abundant life—which includes your finances. He doesn’t want you to struggle or worry—He wants you to have all your needs met, be equipped to help others, and live in His perfect peace.
In order for His blessings to manifest in your life, you have to do your part by being obedient to His Word. You may be feeling tired from the struggle, but don’t “grow weary while doing good, for in due season [you] shall reap if [you] do not lose heart” (Galatians 6:9, NKJV).
It all begins with refusing the wrong mindset and building the right mindset. You may have fallen into the temptation to take on a victim mentality. This includes thoughts like, Why is this happening to me? I’ve always obeyed God, and now here I am.
Why are my finances always a mess? I’m not living in financial abundance like everyone says I should be living.
When you take on a spiritual posture of self-pity, you’re actually standing in a defeated position.— a weak stance that beckons the enemy to get involved and “help” you continue down the wrong path.
Instead, resist the devil—resist self-pity and the blame game—and take back your position of power. A person in power doesn’t complain—he takes action.
Certainly, this will take every ounce of strength you have, but you can do it! God gives you strength when you feel weak (2 Corinthians 12:10), He will arm you with strength for the battle (Psalm 18:39), and He says He always causes you to triumph (2 Corinthians 2:14)—always!
You can put the enemy under your feet. It will take time and a willing heart, so don’t be discouraged if you don’t feel empowered right away.
Begin taking back your power with daily confession of God’s word regarding your finance or any area of need. That’s a power that cannot be defeated.
Then, you’ll soon realize that no matter what your situation looks like, you have the power to overcome it—the power to conquer.
In Jesus Name I declare Abraham’s blessing belongs to me. Abundance and prosperity are God’s will for my life, so I call myself debt free in Jesus’ Name. I declare my debts are paid off.
God’s favor and Blessing are active and operating in every area of my life, Everything I do prospers and succeeds. The wisdom of God helps me to make sound financial decisions. I am blessed and highly favored among men.
In Jesus Christ Name I pray. Amen.
