Why Does God Give Us Authority?

At some time or another, we find that God has placed us in a position of authority, and we should seek to understand why He put us in that position.
When Ahab ruled Israel, he wanted a piece of property from a man who would not sell it, but as the king pouted about it, his wife Jezebel said to you, “You now exercise authority over Israel! Arise, eat food, and let your heart be cheerful; I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite” (1 Kings 21:7).
She thought that authority was for getting what you want; but is that why God gives us authority? What does He want you to do with the authority you have?
