Live As A King
“Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father…” (Revelation 1:5-6).
God has ordained you to reign and rule in life as a king. Not only does He want you to know you’re a king, He also expects you to live as one; it begins with having a consciousness of royalty.
When you look at yourself in the mirror, tell the one on the other side, “You’re a king!” Learn to walk, talk, pray and live as a king, because when God looks at you, He sees a king! Remember, the Bible calls Him the King of kings; He is the Mighty King, but we’re kings under Him. Refuse to see yourself as a helpless, needy person; you’re royalty.
As a king, you’ve been divinely mandated to exercise authority and dominion over the devil and the negative forces of darkness. Ecclesiastes 8:4 says, “Where the word of a king is, there is power.”Your words are backed with inherent power to change any negative situation, and put the devil to flight. Kings talk bold; they’re not at the mercy of anyone, and it’s not in their nature to be apologetic. So, when you issue commands to Satan or decree a change in any negative situation, do it with boldness.
The Bible says you shall decree a thing, and it shall come to pass (Job 22:28). The Kingdom of God to which you belong is a spiritual kingdom where we reign and rule with words. Therefore be bold to make decrees; be bold to speak in line with the Word of God, and whatsoever you say shall be established unto you (Mark 11:23).
Living daily with this consciousness will impact positively on your prayer life. Rather than “beg” God in prayer, you’ll pray like the righteous—with authority and power! The reason being that you know that by grace, He has called you to reign through righteousness: “…they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ”(Romans 5:17).
Dear heavenly Father,
I thank you for making me a king and teaching me to live as one. When I give the Word, things change! I reign by grace through righteousness today, by the power of your Spirit that’s at work in me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
