"Kingdom Authority"

"Majesty" is a powerful song written by Jack Hayford. The words of the song follow:

"Majesty, worship His Majesty.
Unto Jesus be all glory,
Power and praise.
Majesty, Kingdom authority
Flow from His throne,
Unto his own, His anthem raise.

"So exalt, lift up on high
The Name of Jesus.
Magnify, come glorify,
Christ Jesus the King.
Majesty, worship His Majesty.
Jesus who died, now glorified,
King of all Kings."


As we were singing this song in church recently, it spoke to me so deeply. The words "Kingdom authority" were italicized on my heart.

"Kingdom authority." Authority is power. Someone in authority has control of the situation.

In the case of God, He has Kingdom authority. He has power. He is in control of every situation, regardless the circumstances we see. He knows the causes of what happens and the effects it can have on us. He moves the pieces to accomplish what needs to be accomplished. Not only does He see our situation today, but He understands how it fits with His will for today, tomorrow and eternity.

If God has Kingdom authority, who are we to worry? Do we trust Him or don't we trust Him? Does He have the power He says He has or is He a liar? When He gives an order, "do not fear," do we obey or question His authority?

The song also implies that the Kingdom authority flows from His throne to "His own." Do we expect to do the work God placed us here to do? Do we have a job but refuse to do it because He couldn't possibly expect us to do such a big job? When He said that we would do greater works than He did on this earth, do we expect to do greater works or do we know that applies to someone else? Do we take a stand for Jesus and expect Him to act and speak through us or do we do nothing?

Is God who He said He is? Does He have authority? Does His authority flow from His throne to us, His children? Our response in action and word shows what we truly believe.

Majesty!  Worship Jesus' majesty.
