Authority of a Believer

Psalms 8:3-6KJV
When i consider the heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
What is man that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:

When God made the earth, he made man in his image and gave man authority to have dominion over the earth and all things that he has created, including the enemy which is Satan. Having made all things, some one has got to be in charge of what has been created, and
it pleased the Lord to make man lord over the work of his hands. Such that the Psalmist could not comprehend this love that the awesome God has for mere mortal men.

God made man a little lower than himself, for the word translated angels in Psalms 8:5, is from the Greek word 'ELOHIM' which refers to the triune God. God made man a little lower than himself, that man may have dominion over all that he has created. He gave man dominion over the stars and all material things that was created.

God's intention was that man should be king all the days of his life, for he crowned man with glory and honour. Mere men dont wear crown, only kings do. God shared his own personal glory with man when he crowned man with glory and honour, just as Pharaoh gave Joseph his signet ring.

You may be wondering why you have to go through all the troubles if indeed God mad man with authority? The authority was lost when Adam sinned, he sold the authority to the enemy and the glory left. This is why demons can oppress people and they use wicked men whose souls have been sold to them. According to

Romans 3:23KJV
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.

The glory was the crown that man had, and once the crown was gone the kingship was lost, but this glory was restored in Christ Jesus.

But God who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
God understands spiritual hierarchy, in the spiritual hierarchy, God comes first, man second, after which comes archangels, then angels, and other material things. The devil was an archangel, when man sinned against God, he sold his spiritual hierarchy to the devil, the hierarchy changed to become God, followed by satan, followed by angels, then followed by man. but God reordered this hierarchy in Christ.

And has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

If you have given your life to Jesus, if you've believed and trusted in the cross of Christ and you were washed by the blood of the lamb, the moment you gave your life to Christ you were baptized into Christ by the Holy Spirit according to 1cor. 12:13. You were immersed into Christ, you were joined with Christ, you have been made one with Christ, and you are seated with Christ in heavenly places at the right hand of the Father.

Eph.1: 19-21KJV
And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

God's right hand is the place of authority and that is where you are seated. Because you are born again, you are seated with Christ in heavenly places, at the Father's right hand. You are far above, not on the same level, you are far are far above all principalities, not some, but all. You are above every name that is named not only in this world but also in that which is to come. If the name is poverty you are above it, if it is sickness you are above it, if it is witchcraft you are above it, if it is wizerdry you are above it, if it is bareness you are above it. What ever the name is, you are above it. This is the truth of the word.

Romans 8: 15kJV
For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you have received the spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

You have changed positions, now you are in Christ, what ever is given to Christ is automatically given to you, that was why he told the disciples that all authority has being given to him. You are a joint heir with Christ, you are baptized into the body of Christ, what belongs to Christ belongs to you, you have the authority of Christ, you have the name of Christ, it is named upon you.

The Glory is back, the glory of God is upon your life, the presence of God is upon your life, take authority over the devil and demons, stand up to your authority in Christ, take what belongs to you from the enemy, it is yours. The devil is a liar, you are a king and a queen, you are far above all principalities and powers. It is your season of recovery. Every thing that the enemy has taken from you is restored to you, all powers are broken over you, you are free. Your authority and dominion is restored totally, victory is yours.
