Matthew 10:1 Meditation

Jesus called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out impure spirits and to heal every disease and sickness. Matthew 10:1 TPT

It was always Your plan Jesus
To make us Your co-rulers
To give us Your authority
Re-make us in Your image

Your disciples had seen
Your actions of power
How Your words of authority
Brought healing and freedom
They had seen the lame walk
The blind receive their sight
And demons flee
From Your Presence and Your light

But You wanted more
More for them and for this world
You wanted us to be like You
Living the kingdom of God
So You began this day
With sharing Your authority
To heal and deliver
To Your disciples given

It was always Your plan Jesus
To make us Your co-rulers
To give us Your authority
Re-make us in Your image

I can only imagine
The shock on their faces
When You gave them this gift
Told them of their new places
By Your side as Your co-workers
Like brothers not servants
Like sons of a king
With His authority to bring

Were they slain in the Spirit
By this impartation?
Were they delighted or dumfounded
To be controlling Your power?
Did they see what it meant
How Your kingdom works?
Did they understand
That all that’s Yours would be theirs?

It was always Your plan Jesus
To make us Your co-rulers
To give us Your authority
Re-make us in Your image

In this first impartation
We see Your plan for salvation
We see the glory of heaven
Humanity re-creating
These ordinary men
Were raise to Your height
So they could live as sons of God
In His kingdom power

For them this transformation
Must have been a powerful thing
Because there was no discussion
No doubts and questioning
They had seen You at work
Knew what they were getting
Your power to heal and deliver
Your Kingdom authority

It was always Your plan Jesus
To make us Your co-rulers
To give us Your authority
Re-make us in Your image

And as You call each of us
Into Your salvation
You impart the same authority
To each disciple You are making
For through our co-resurrection
You raise us to Your throne
By the side of God
Your eternal kingdom home

Help me to live each day
In Your authority
Bring Your Kingdom to earth
Live Your love and glory
Let my life be a song
Of praise for Your great gift
In making each of us Your brothers
With Your indwelling life

It was always Your plan Jesus
To make us Your co-rulers
To give us Your authority
Re-make us in Your image
