Inhibitor#1 Sin      Walk In God’s Authority 

When we habitually sin, we come under Satan’s earthly authority, and he has legal rights over us until we repent. That is why Jesus said, “‘The ruler of this world is coming, and has nothing on Me'” (John 14:30, NKJV). Jesus was without sin, so the devil could not get a foothold in His life. James 5:16 declares, “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” This verse points out that authority is given to the righteous. Carlos Annacondia, an Argentine evangelist, once said that he believes God gave him more authority when he became ruthless about his sin and the sin in his family’s life. Speaking from that same vein, we must be under authority before we can exercise authority. If we are rebellious in our walk we will not have much authority. 1 Samuel 15:23, “For rebellion is as the sin divination……” Look at it this way, when Satan rebelled against God and he not only lost his authority but he also was removed from his position in heaven.
