“While you were ministering, I watched Satan topple until he fell suddenly from heaven like lightning to the ground. Now you understand that I have imparted to you all my authority to trample over his kingdom. You will trample upon every demon before you and overcome every power Satan possesses. Absolutely nothing will be able to harm you as you walk in this authority.” Luke 10:18-19 TPT
The way I hear some people pray today, they expect God to do something about the demons attacking their families, finances and future. But my dear friends, before He even died for you, Jesus imparted all His authority to you. When he sent the 70 out to the villages, He first gave them authority. Why would he ever send anyone out without first giving them the authority to heal the sick and raise the dead.
“However, your real source of joy isn’t merely that these spirits submit to your authority, but that your names are written in the journals of heaven and that you belong to God’s kingdom. This is the true source of your authority.” Luke 10:20 TPT
Right there! Knowing who you are and whose you are makes all the difference in the world. If you know you belong to God, that your names are written in the Lambs book of life and that you are a part of His Kingdom, that’s the source of your authority. Knowing! Without doubt. No more questions. I’m His child and I have authority.
I know that when I hit the light switch, the light will come on. I know that when I turn the thermostat up, the furnace will kick on. I know when I get in my car and hit the button or turn the key, the car will start. I know when I unlock the door of my house, I gain entrance. And I know that when I lay hands on the sick, they’re healed. I know that Jesus gave me power and I don’t just possess it, I use it!
It’s time the body of Christ started using the authority they have. It’s time we let the devil know that we’re in control, not him! He no longer has power over our bodies, minds or spirits because they’ve been surrendered to Gods service and NOTHING will harm us! Go back and read that again. You can read it in any translation and it says the same thing:
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. NKJV
I have given you the authority to trample snakes and scorpions and to destroy the enemy’s power. Nothing will hurt you. GW
Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you. AMPC
See what I’ve given you? Safe passage as you walk on snakes and scorpions, and protection from every assault of the Enemy. No one can put a hand on you. MSG
Do you see it? Go to your favorite translation and pull it up, the message is the same and you must know it deep in your spirit until it screams louder then your fears of failure. “I AM GODS CHILD AND HAVE ALL AUTHORITY OVER ALL SATANS FORCES. NOTHING CAN HURT ME, MY FAMILY, MY HEALTH, MY BODY, MIND AND SPIRIT, MY FINANCES. YOU CAN’T WIN, DEVIL! I HAVE AUTHORITY OVER YOU!!!!!”
Trust me when I tell you that once the light comes on and you recognize you’ve been blinded, deceived into buying into his lies, you’ll go after him like a tornado. You’ll wreck havoc on his forces and when he sees you coming, he’ll run like the coward he is. NOTHING CAN HARM YOU when you know your authority. NOTHING!
I’m tired of seeing Christians run in fear when the enemy comes knocking. He’s afraid of YOU and the one IN you is so much greater. Let your light get bright and the lover of darkness will run.
Look at yourself in the mirror and say, “I am a child of God and He who is in me is greater then he that’s in the world. I will walk in the power and authority that is in me and be a force to be reckoned with today. Satan, I’m telling you to back off my body, mind and spirit! I serve you notice, the eviction process has begun. You will not control my thoughts nor will you have access to my finances. You will not touch my body or my families bodies. You pack up and high-tail it out of here in the name of Jesus. Now I plead the blood of Jesus over every part of me and thank You Father for the blood that was shed. There’s power in that blood! One drop was enough to deal with all sin, sickness and disease. I will walk in my authority today and bring Your Word and the manifestation of Your goodness to everyone around me. It’s in Jesus’ name and for Your glory. Amen”
