• An order or instruction given by somebody in authority.
Words similar to command are: rule, domination, control, power, sway, dominion and authority.
Jesus said in Luke 10:18, “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
In the above scripture the word power is used twice, the first time it is mentioned, “…power to tread,” it actually is the Greek word, exousia, which means authority. Jesus was telling believers, I am delegating my authority to you. He had a legal right to entrust and/or assign His God given authority and power.
God’s authority is above any other authority in heaven and earth. Jesus said after He was raised from the dead, “All power is given unto me.” Well who gave Him that power, the one in whom all power and authority belongs, God Almighty.
In the beginning, in the book of Genesis it is noted that God gave man dominion over many things that He had created. God created man with the capacity to rule. When someone is in authority their authority is meaningless if it is not exercised or demonstrated. When we don’t use or put into effect the authority God has given us we forfeit our right to lead and take command; thus allowing fraudulent authorities to step up and lead.
We have an opportunity each and every morning to rise up in our God given son-ship and rule and reign with God. We have the right and God given privilege to command the order of our day. We don’t have to just settle for whatever may come our way, no, we can command our destinies according to God’s revealed will for our lives. God has a pre-destined path for every one of His children but we must seek Him for direction and instruction. As we come to know God’s will we can then begin to declare it in the earth. Jesus said, I am able to do nothing from Myself [independently, of My own accord--but only as I am taught by God and as I get His orders]. Even as I hear, I judge [I decide as I am bidden to decide. As the voice comes to Me, so I give a decision], and My judgment is right (just, righteous), because I do not seek or consult My own will [I have no desire to do what is pleasing to Myself, My own aim, My own purpose] but only the will and pleasure of the Father Who sent Me. (John 5:30 AMP).
Once we know the will of God we can then command with great accuracy and effectiveness. God does not feel threatened or insecure when His children stand beside Him, ruling and reigning; I believe He is pleased and elated. We have been made kings and priests unto God and his Father, Revelations 1:6. We have inherited the divine nature of God which is infused with the ability to command. We are not heirs of weakness or cowardice; we are heirs of strength and power. We are not those who will timidly shrink back into the carnal earthly heritage of our past. We are strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. We are those who stand tall with the Father at the dawning of each new day and boldly declare the way the day will be.
COMMAND THE MORNING!
This is a good day, a day of new mercies for me and my family.
This is a day of peace and safety. This is a day of supernatural manifestation and angelic intervention for me. This day my body is strong, whole and well. This day I have the mind of Christ. This day I am prosperous and well favored by God. This day the blessings of God over take me. This day I walk in the revealed will of God for my life. This day I call forth blessing, increase, provision, protection, pre-destined opportunities and divine appointments… Come now, in Jesus Name! This day good things come my way.
Well you can go on and on depending on what you want that day to look like. Jesus said He only did those things which He had seen with His Father. When we spend quality time with God He shows us things to come, He reveals our destinies to us. As He creates the divine image in our spirit and in our minds of what our lives should be like, we can them command forth and live out what we see.
Be bold to command what God has said concerning your life and don’t settle for an imitation or anything less than 100% of what He has revealed to you.
Go ahead COMMAND THE MORNING; it’s waiting for your voice of authority!
