We all encompass authority. It is inherently ours as individuals reflecting the image of God. Every human being on this earth has that same power, no matter who you are. Holding tight and guarding your own power will help you in life. Do not let other people dictate your feelings. Has anyone earned that right? When you are in full control of your own emotions, you are more free to fully pursue your God-given purpose. You will not be held back. It is not a power, however, as the world sees power. It is not a power that abuses, but rather that moves us forward. It is a power that allows us to step into our God given identity. Own it. Do not be afraid to step into your identity as "more than a conqueror". If we reflect God Himself, should we not reflect every part?
Be mindful of who you are giving your God-ordained authority to. If you are handing it out like hotcakes, the good news is you can regain it. Honestly, this excites me. If you are like me, you can start winning in ways you have been losing for so long. God has not called you to pursue your mother's purpose, or your father's dream. He has not called you to pursue your best friend's idea of what is good for your life. You have a unique call. Don't compromise that.
More power to ya.
