His message confirmed much of what pastor Dwayne had taught us over the last weeks. After the message we listened to "You are My Champion" by Bethel Music featuring Dante Bowe. The lyrics include: "I have the authority Jesus has given me. When I open up my mouth miracles start breaking out" and "You crown me with confidence. I am seated in the heavenly place. Undefeated with the One who has conquered it all".

1 How dare the nations plan a rebellion. Their foolish plots are futile!
2 Look at how the power brokers of the world rise up to hold their summit as the rulers scheme and confer together against Yahweh and his Anointed King, saying:
3 “Let’s come together and break away from the Creator. Once and for all let’s cast off these controlling chains of God and his Christ!”
4 God-Enthroned merely laughs at them; the Sovereign One mocks their madness!
5 Then with the fierceness of his fiery anger he settles the issue and terrifies them to death with these words:
6 “I myself have poured out my King on Zion, my holy mountain.
Psalm 24:1-7 David’s poetic praise to God (TPT)
1 God claims the world as his. Everything and everyone belongs to him!
2 He’s the one who pushed back oceans to let the dry ground appear, planting firm foundations for the earth.
7 So wake up, you living gateways! Lift up your heads, you ageless doors of destiny! Welcome the King of Glory, for he is about to come through you.
Romans 8:18-22 (TPT)
18 I am convinced that any suffering we endure is less than nothing compared to the magnitude of glory that is about to be unveiled within us.
19 The entire universe is standing on tiptoe, yearning to see the unveiling of God’s glorious sons and daughters!
20 For against its will the universe itself has had to endure the empty futility resulting from the consequences of human sin. But now, with eager expectation,
21 all creation longs for freedom from its slavery to decay and to experience with us the wonderful freedom coming to God’s children.
22 To this day we are aware of the universal agony and groaning of creation, as if it were in the contractions of labor for childbirth.
Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make.
Proverbs 3:6 Become intimate with him in whatever you do, and he will lead you wherever you go.
Ephesians 2:6 He raised us up with Christ the exalted One, and we ascended with him into the glorious perfection and authority of the heavenly realm, for we are now co-seated as one with Christ!
