Victory in spiritual warfare begins with understanding your spiritual identity in Christ. You are a son of God, the highest and most respected status in the realm of the spirit. Many of us have yet to grasp the import of our sonship.
The religious people of Jesus’ day knew better. When Jesus Christ declared before them that He was the Son of God, they were provoked and attempted to stone Him. When Jesus asked them the reason for their reaction, the Jews answered Him, saying, “…because You, being a Man, make Yourself God.” (John 10:33)
In response, Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, “You are gods”?-(John 10:34). A son carries the status and enjoys the authority of his father. When we go into the place of warfare as sons of God, we are going with all of heaven’s power, and we become invincible to the enemy.
When God sent Moses to Pharaoh, He did not send him as Moses; He sent him as a god. The Lord said to Moses: “See, I have made you as a god to Pharaoh.” -(Exodus 7:1). In other words, if you must confront and conquer the enemy, you cannot go as a son of man but as a son of God.
I am sending you, not as Moses, because, as Moses, you ran away from Pharaoh, but I am sending you as a god. Our spiritual identity must be exalted above our natural identity for victory not to elude us in the place of warfare. You have confronted some challenges in your status as a natural man, but now you must go back and face them as a child of God with the authority of your Father.
There is a spirit behind every obstacle standing on your path of destiny; it takes you confronting them as a god to overcome. No Pharaoh can withstand you when you rise as a child of God, in the place of prayer, and address them with authority, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Father, I ask every Pharaoh to give up on my case in the name of Jesus Christ.
How should we leverage the knowledge of our identity in Christ for a victorious life?
