Satan keeps trying to strip away the image of God that we should have. He tries to make Him small and weak and unimportant. We simply have to believe our God is who He is: mighty, great, merciful, abundant, and sovereign. We must have our sense of awe kept strong so our faith will stay strong in Him. God wants you to see who He is to your life. He wants you to view His nature and His character and His abilities and be in such awe that you can’t help but cry out, “You’re my God!”
See His Mercy.
See His Vision.
(14:30 min ).
Jurisdiction. Sounds like it’s a big legal term. But it just boils down to this: it’s the authority and command God has. No one has power over Him.
So because we as a believer are under God’s jurisdiction, nothing has power over us. He protects us and insures our success. He is our God. That’s what we say to Him. “You’re my God and I’m under Your control.”
When we say that, nothing else can have power over us. Sure, Satan can send his forces to cause us trouble and problems and difficulty. And we can encounter the normal challenges of life. Disappointments and sorrows. But in the end, they do not command our life.
God commands your conditions in spite of what the enemy is doing.
I’ll give you a picture of how this appears in your life at times. In 1943 during World War II, a very young and inexperienced fighter pilot, Robert Johnson, was on one of his first missions. He was in a P-47 Thunderbolt fighter plane. The engineers had designed this plane not just to go out and fight but to enable the pilot to make it home after a fight. That’s God’s design for you. He engineers you so that even when the fights come, you’re still able to make it to your destination and not be taken out and damaged beyond repair.
As Johnson was on this mission, he was hit by an enemy fighter. The bullets destroyed his instruments and the plane started spinning. So Johnson decided to eject, but the canopy was jammed and he couldn’t get out. There was a fire in the engines and he felt liquid in his eyes. He thought he was going to die.
Then all of a sudden in a miracle way, the plane was able to pull out of a death spiral and start flying straight again. The fire went out in the engines and the plane was flying just fine. It didn’t have much power but it had enough that Johnson could make it back to base.
That is…until another enemy plane spotted him by himself. It just so happened it was flown by an ace. He had 66 kills to his credit. When he saw Johnson’s plane had been shot up, he figured he had another easy kill.
When the devil sees us in difficult conditions, he thinks he has an easy victory over us coming up. But as we have faith in our God, the devil is the one who’s going to be surprised. That’s because we are under God’s jurisdiction, under His authority and control.
Here’s what happens to Johnson. When this ace pulls behind his plane He knows it can’t outrun his because it is damaged. So he sends out a barrage of bullets into the back of it. He figures this will finish him. But after he hits it, the plane keeps flying. Well, this really gets the attention of this ace flyer so he actually pulls alongside Johnson’s plane. The enemy sees that Johnson’s cockpit is filled with oil, he’s injured, and there are all kinds of bullet holes in the plane. He shakes his head in unbelief.
For the second time, he gets behind Johnson’s plane and rains down his ammunition on him. But the P-47 still doesn’t go down. So he pulls up beside Johnson, views the conditions of the plane, then pulls back behind him and strafes the plane with bullets wing tip to wing tip.
But what happens? The plane continues to fly. Johnson is not killed. For the third time, the enemy pilot pulls up beside Johnson, looks over his plane, and shakes his head. He has run out of ammunition. So he rocks his plane back and forth in a salute and flies off.
When Johnson makes it back to base and lands the plane, he gets out and starts counting the number of bullet holes in the plane. Without even walking around the plane, he counts 200 holes, so he stops counting. He just knows that he and the plane have endured a relentless assault.
Do you feel that you are enduring a relentless assault from the enemy? You don’t even want to count the bullet holes in your life because there are too many.
I can tell you right now, you’re going to make it back in spite of the damage the enemy has tried to do. You’re going to make it back just fine. That’s because you’re under God’s jurisdiction, not the devil’s. He doesn’t have jurisdiction over you so he can’t decide your fate. God has your destiny in His hands. No control by Satan can determine what’s going to happen to you.
In John 14:30 Jesus said that the devil has no jurisdiction over us. So what you need to see happen is going to happen because your plane isn’t going down. You’re under God’s jurisdiction. He’s your God!
A Spiritual Powerline to say out loud:
“I AM UNDER GOD'S CONTROL!”
Here is a powerful prayer
to say out loud:
God, I am under Your jurisdiction! You have command of my conditions. Therefore I know I will make it to the place I desire. I pray that You send Your mighty power against what the enemy is doing in my life now. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
