Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, "Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God day and night.
What is salvation and power and kingdom rule without authority? Just words or perhaps illustrations, at best. Authority is what gives meaning to salvation, power, life... In the great spiritual throw down, it's authority that makes all the difference.
Lord God and His Christ, thank You for Your words; I pray that I am always found in and under Your divine, eternal, matchless, magnificent authority. No matter what is coming down or what accusations sound, I bow to Your authority, I want no other apart from what You provide. Thank You for allowing me to partake of Your Kingdom. God please strengthen and heighten the defenses of Michael and his angels. Don't let them grow weary in the battle or sustain grievous injury. Multiply their abilities and reward their devotion for Your glory's sake. Yours is the Kingdom, the Power, the Glory and the Authority forever and ever.
