I don’t speak of my own authority!

John 12:49 NLT: I don’t speak on my own authority. The Father who sent me has commanded me what to say and how to say it.

My dear friend in Christ, today’s text is one of the profound reasons why Jesus succeeded in life and ministry. He released this information for our learning. All He said was given Him by the father. Even the way He said what He said was given Him by the father. This is amazing. You might know what to say but how you say it can affect things.

In our world today, the crave to do it our own way is the order of the day. No one wants to be told what to do. No one wants to be subject to authority. Hence the reason for the catastrophic failures we are recording both in life and ministry. Unknown to many, the desire to be independent and not be under any authority is a satanic principle. This is the same thing that got him (satan)out of Heaven in the first place and so he wants all to join him and be lost.

Therefore, I adjure you by the mercies of God to subject yourself to an authority as directed by God. Both to man and God, be subject to authority. Don’t submit yourself to lawlessness. Both in life and ministry, seek the face of God and submit to all He wants and how He wants it. Be subject to man as well as directed by God
Then watch your life become an absolute success.

Declare to yourself loud: I will subject myself to authority.


  1. Almighty God, give me the grace to be subject to authority, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
  2. Please add your personal intentions.

John 12:44-50
