Authority…
“For this reason, I did not even consider myself worthy to come to You, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed.” Luke 7:7 NASB.
The word "authority" is a strong word. It's filled with meaning and when we hear the word, there's a certain powerful force behind it. It denotes privilege, rule, control and permission. And as Believers, we have to be committed to surrendering to the will of God and to His Authority for our lives. Luke 7 gives us a perfect example of a Centurion Roman who was willing to surrenders his authority to the “One Authority.’

In essence, he said; I know you are in charge, I know you are capable. I’m not in control: you are in control, I yield to you because I have no power. You possess all power
