Apostle Grace Lubega
Daniel 4:17 (KJV); This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.
I have seen a great delusion on the earth, in men that assume that they have control over certain territories when they in fact do not.
True owners are defined by our theme scripture. The Bible says that God rules in the kingdom of men and gives it to whomever He wills.
There are people who walk this earth and God has given them control over entire nations. Those nations may know it or may not know it but it does not take away the fact that by God, the nation is in the hands of a man and one word from him can seat or unseat anyone who holds authority only by assumption.
If you wonder at this truth, look at the life of Elijah. It was only at the point when he was taken up in a whirlwind that the scriptures revealed his true spiritual identity and his authority over Israel. Elisha calls him in 2 Kings 2:12, “the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof.”
Even without a physical crown on his head, Elijah ruled Israel.
How about Elisha his successor?
Elisha saved Israel from the attacks of the Syrian army because he was capable of sitting in on their strategy meetings even without their knowledge (2 Kings 6:12). He was to all intents and purposes a ruler among men.
The protection of a nation is not in the skill of its army and the greatness of its military weapons, it is with men to whom God has given power over territories. This authority belongs to us as children of God and it is up to us to walk in this truth.

GOLDEN NUGGET: The protection of a nation is not in the skill of its army and the greatness of its military weapons, it is with men to whom God has given power over territories. This authority belongs to us as children of God and it is up to us to walk in this truth.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. I thank You for the authority that I have as a child of God. I am a king and I understand the realms of authority that I have been trusted with. I live in the consciousness of this power and this great privilege, to establish Your great mandate upon the earth, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
