Reference: Matthew 7:29 NIV

“… because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.”

My Thoughts

Speak with authority, it will change the perception of the listener. If I don’t believe in what I am saying, should I be saying it? I shouldn’t. What I should be doing is asking questions or listening for answers. When I speak with God first to understand what I’m supposed to say and the manner in which I’m supposed to say it, why wouldn’t I speak with authority? I’m not responsible for their response. God is obligated to protect me when I’m in His order.
