Where the word of a king is, there is power; And who may say to him, “What are you doing?” Ecclesiastes 8:4
Every child of God must have the kingdom mentality. Our Father is the paramount king over us His kings. We need to live by the king’s decrees if we are to enjoy from His glory.
Democracy is the norm in most countries in the world today. These democracies are governed by constitutions. A constitution is a piece of document that contains words of power to govern. Without it, no president, judge, government appointee has the power to govern.
Moreover, without a constitution, no citizen has a right and responsibility. In short, most countries today are governed by constitutions – a document that contains words that grant power to individuals to govern. In the same manner, the kingdom of God is ruled by the king’s decrees. God the king decrees and everyone in the kingdom must live by them.
When God speaks, that is his power being released. Where the word of the king is there is power – that power needed to turn your story around until you align to the glory of the kingdom. The words you heed to determine the power you carry. For instance, the words from the world’s news media carry fear.
As long as you are in the kingdom of God, your desire must be aligned to the king’s decrees. Because no one survives going against what the king has said. What he says is how He wants His kingdom to look like. In the kingdom of God, He doesn’t want death, poverty, sickness, sin, unbelief, sorrow, and the likes anywhere around it. The king’s decrees are the word of God you have received from Him.
God didn’t bring people together to write a constitution for us. What He has done is to give us His own words which He declares from His heart. His words to you are His very best for you – His best wishes for your life. His words are from His innermost being, intending to bring you to the level of His glory.
Take Pride In The King’s Decrees
18 Therefore take heed how you hear. For whoever has, to him more will be given; and whoever does not have, even what he [i]seems to have will be taken from him.” Luke 8:18
What you hear is so important – because you become what you hear over a period of time. Our destiny is to live the life of the kingdom in this world. It is written, “your kingdom come and let you will be done”. It is the kingdom’s will that must be done in this world. And how are we going to do that? By relying on the powerful words of our king.
Words are not merely spoken for the fun of it. They are the vehicle to bringing any destiny into manifestation. Your glory and destiny lie in the words you hear. The king’s decrees are to lead you into living the beautiful life that He has in himself. Be resolute to live what God desires for you. Don’t live by sight – live by faith. The king’s decrees are meant to give you power over the limitations you may be encountering.
Daily engage the king’s decrees. His mercies are new every morning. His words always bring the freshness needed for a spark, joy, and energy to bulldoze through the storms. Stay blessed always.
