God given authority!
Dr. Paul Dhinakaran
My precious friend, today’s promise is taken from Haggai 2:23. “On that day,” declares the Lord Almighty, “I will take you, my servant Zerubbabel, son of Shealtiel,” declares the Lord, “and I will make you like my signet ring, for I have chosen you,” declares the Lord Almighty.” In this verse, the Lord says to Zerubbabel, the governor of Jerusalem, “I will make you like my signet ring, for I have chosen you.” The Lord says the same to you today. He says, “I have chosen you, my son or daughter, so rule with all My authority.” Don’t think you're defeated. Yes, He will build you and build your ruins again. He further says, “I will make Jerusalem a beautiful city and a palace.” Jeremiah 30:18 says so: This is what the LORD says: “When I bring Israel home again from captivity and restore their fortunes, Jerusalem will be rebuilt on its ruins and the palace reconstructed as before.” Yes, you have been chosen for that. Even today, God is saying the same thing to you.
My son or daughter says, “Maybe everything has become a mud heap.” May be everything in your life has become ruins. Yet God says, “I am putting my seal of authority upon you.” I am giving my signet ring of authority to you. “You have my name.” Yes, you are carrying the name of Jesus, in whose name every knee bows. At the name of Jesus every problem bows. Every devil runs. Every sickness is healed. God says, “I am placing the seal of my name upon your life, my son and daughter, because I have chosen you. Rise up and build now. If you build your spirit and enjoy my living presence, you will become my palace. I will live in you, and there will be life in you and in your spirit from now on. Rise up and build your studies again. I will raise you up with wisdom. My wisdom is the seal given to you, my child. You will be a palace and prosper in every way. Rise up and build your family again. I will raise you up and build your family like a palace. You will rise up in your ministry. You will rise up in your social realm; rise up in your job. Rise up in every area of your life. I have chosen you to become a palace. 'I am your authority.”
