Power of Attorney

There are times in our busy lives that we aren't able to go and get everything done as we would like to do, and there may be some transactions that must take place but we have to be somewhere else at that time. This is where a power of attorney document would come in handy. This document allows an individual to appoint another person or organization to conduct a specific business transaction in the absence of the principle person. Most husbands and wives have these documents done up which keeps both from having to schedule both their times to let's say be at the bank to sign papers. This document says in essence that "I give this person or organization complete authority to function in my name on my behalf."

We as believers have been given that same type of Power of Attorney. We don't have to worry about when the enemy raises his head to come against our families, finances or our fellowship. All we must do is invoke the Power of Attorney that has been given to us by the Lord himself. Mark 16:17b "...in my name shall they cast out devils..." We don't even have to worry about not having enough or going without, because when it seems that are backs are against the wall all we have to do is utilize the Power of Attorney...John 14:13 "And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do..."

So, don't be concerned about any situation that may show itself today or even tomorrow; just know that you as a believer have been given the Power of Attorney for every area of life.
