Prayer Summary for December 22


Thank You for the peace of God that surpasses all understanding
We take it and receive it by faith, today
Thank You for the power of Your precious Holy Spirit, Father
Give us the words to speak, and we will speak them in love
We will continue to do all that You have called us to do, Lord
Your presence is overtaking us today!


The following excerpt is taken from The Believer’s Authority by Kenneth E. Hagin:

The Keys of Authority

The Bible says Satan had the power of death—but Jesus conquered him. Jesus says in Revelation 1:18, “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.” Jesus Christ took the keys away from the devil, glory to God! Keys belong to the Authorized One. Those are the keys of authority.

This is precisely where the Church world as a whole has failed. It has understood that Jesus Christ is the Supreme Head of the Church, but it has failed to understand that the Head is totally dependent of the Body for carrying out His plans; that we are seated with Christ in heavenly places; and that His exercising authority over the powers of the air has to be through the Body.

Now we can understand as never before what Jesus meant when He said, “…Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Matt. 18:18). That’s using His authority upon the earth.

“Do we have authority that we don’t know we have?”

When I began to study the subject, I found that we do have authority, thank God. I also found that heaven will back us up on what we refuse and what we allow. We’ve allowed a lot of things, but we just haven’t exercised our authority. That’s why things are as they are many times: we haven’t done anything about the situation. We’re waiting on God, and He’s waiting on us, and He won’t do anything until we act.

“No earthly father desires to do more for his children than I do, if my children would just let Me!”

Some people think that God’s a tyrant sitting on His throne holding a giant flyswatter in His hand.  The minute you do something wrong, they believe He’s ready to smash you to smithereens. But that’s not a true picture of the Father.

The Lord is hindered in His plans because His Body has failed to appreciate the meaning of Christ’s exaltation and the fact that we are seated with Him at the right hand of the Father. We have a part to play in this: we must cooperate with the Lord in faith.

Jesus said that the Holy Spirit, who comes to dwell in us when we are born again, would guide us into all truth. A preacher once picked up a Bible and threw it to the floor, declaring he didn’t need it because he had the Holy Spirit. But he did need the Bible, because you can’t follow the Holy Spirit into truth apart from the Bible.

When you get out beyond the written Word of God, you’re getting out too far. Stay with the Word.

The Word of God is from the Spirit of God: holy men of old wrote it. The Word of God is of utmost importance. But you’ll never understand it with your head; you must understand it with your heart.

Don’t put the Spirit above the Word. Put the Word first and the Spirit second, and you’ll be safe.

The well-known Pentecostal editor Stanley Frodsham, the author of Smith Wigglesworth’s biography, brought out the fact that Wigglesworth was, first of all, a man of God’s Word, and, second, a man filled with the Spirit of God. That’s an excellent combination.
