4. Use Your Authority for Finances
“He disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross.” –Colossians 2:15
If you’ve ever experienced the stress that comes from financial pressure, you know how difficult it is when you’re so strapped you don’t have enough money to pay your bills.
There are things that can block financial blessing such as being in unforgiveness, failing to walk in love, failing to tithe and sow, or operating without integrity. Those areas should be checked first. But if everything is in line with the Word of God, you may be facing an attack of the devil on your finances. He comes to STEAL, kill and destroy. He does not want you blessed.
Here’s the good news: Jesus reduced principalities and powers to nothing—He took away the devil’s power to dominate us in any way—including in the realm of our finances. Our job is to act on this truth. As long as we act like the devil has power over our finances, he will. But if you will believe in your heart and confess with your mouth what God’s Word says about finances, you’ll be taking authority, and you’ll get what you need.
So, when you’re facing an attack of the enemy on your finances, take your place of authority. Speak to the financial mountain. Say, “SATAN, TAKE YOUR HANDS OFF MY MONEY AND OFF MY PROPERTY. Ministering spirits (angels), GO! Cause all that’s mine in the kingdom of God to come into my hands, now! I declare THE BLESSING of the Lord, THE SHIELD OF GRACE up around all that’s mine!”
In conclusion, when you learn how to use your spiritual authority in any situation, nothing will be impossible for you! You’ll be operating in the position of dominion God intended from the beginning. God did not create you to be a victim—you were made to WIN!
