As I have said before, you must die before you can live. As you die to self, My life can be displayed. I was never worried about being taken advantage of because I entrusted Myself to the Father at all times. When taken advantage of, I entrusted Myself to the One true righteous judge. He always makes everything right in the end.
You must stop trying to protect yourself and entrust yourself to Me. You want spiritual authority and you will have it. However, you must pass the tests first before you can be given more. I am doing this for your protection for the enemy would seek to destroy you.
Until you care more about My will than yours, you cannot be entrusted with more. Come, take My hand, and I will help you overcome as I have done so many times before. Remember, you overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony, not loving your life even unto death. I will be with you always, even unto the end of the age. You can do this. I will help you. It is My promise to you.
Psalm 143:8 New International Version (NIV)
Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.
Psalm 66:10 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
For You, O God, have proved us; You have tried us as silver is tried, refined, and purified.
1 Peter 2:23 Amplified Bible (AMP)
While being reviled and insulted, He did not revile or insult in return; while suffering, He made no threats [of vengeance], but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges fairly.
