By Sharon JeffersonMicah 4:9-13 is such a powerful word for this end-time season for the church. What a question: Where is the King in you?When we became born again, the King of Kings took up residence in us. However, something has not taken place in much of the church today. In verse 9 there is a question: “Why dost thou cry out aloud?” If we listen, we can hear the cries of the people in our churches, and our nation, even around the world. People are desperate, destitute, sick, homeless, jobless, hopeless, broke and in despair. There is a good reason for people who do not know the Lord to be in these situations. They should feel hopeless and in despair. But I am talking about those who confess and profess that Jesus is their Lord. These are the ones who are crying louder than those in the world. Of course this should not be.The Lord began to speak to me through these Scriptures. The King in most believers has not arisen to a place of kingdom authority and dominion. They have settled for sickness, disease, famine, hopelessness, poverty, desperation, etc. Much of the church is still trying to do things in their own strength, their own way and in their own timing instead of trusting in the Lord, yielding, surrendering all to the Lord and allowing the King in us to arise and taking dominion and authority over sickness, disease, poverty hopelessness and despair. In Genesis 1:28, God commanded us to have dominion over the fish of the sea, the fowl of the air and the fish of the sea. Adam and Eve lost the dominion and the authority, but Jesus died on the cross to give us that dominion and authority back. God commanded us to subdue the earth, to replenish it and to multiply. We will never be able to do any of this sitting around having a pity party, feeling sorry for ourselves. It won't work if we trust men to bring it to pass, either. The King in us must arise and take it by force, as the word declares us to do. Get up and do something for the kingdom of God. Stop trusting in self, jobs, carnal things. Surrender all to the Lord, and allow the King in you to arise and come forth strong and powerful with might and authority in total victory in Christ Jesus. There is no place in Scripture where the Lord is weak. Even on the cross all were aware of His dominion, authority and power. We have the same power within us, but when are we going to begin to walk in this power, dominion and authority? In 1 Timothy 6:15, we read about the only potentate. The Lord is our potentate. There is nothing that he cannot or will not penetrate for our sakes. The kingdom of God comes with power. He has given us power to heal, have power over unclean spirits, to deliver, to overcome the devil. In Luke 10:19, He gave us power to tread over all of the power of the enemy, power over the nations. We have been given all power to unseat the enemy, to destroy the works of the enemy, to walk in victory upon this earth.I want to ask you, where is the power, where is it? I will tell you where it is, it is within us, waiting to come out of us for the glory of the Lord. When are we going to release the King in us?We welcome your comments at firstname.lastname@example.org or 419-222-3966.
