Authority And Power
…far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.
Victory In Jesus
Satan may have more power than you but he doesn’t have authority over you as a born again believer. We should never confuse power with authority. Satan knows he doesn’t have authority over you but he doesn’t want you to know it. Satan will try hard to intimidate you with lies and pressure and to deceive you into believing he has authority over you. He even tried deceiving Jesus.
The day that Jesus died on the cross, Satan lost his authority. Even though he prowls like a lion trying to devour Christians, he is unsuccessful. You do not belong to Satan, you belong to Jesus. Jesus is the One who died in your place. He is the One who gives forgiveness of sins. As a Christian, you answer to Christ, not Satan.
You may think that you’ve lost but don’t you haven’t. There is a spiritual war raging right now and you can’t see it. Satan’s angels are trying to get you but God’s angels are more powerful. They are fighting for you. That should put a smile on your face and joy in your heart. In The Name of Jesus all demons have to flee. That is the kind one of authority we have over Satan and his angels. If you feel like you are being deceived, speak the name of Jesus and watch what happens. Make a difference today by knowing that you can speak authority of Satan. He powerful, but you have more authority because of Jesus.
Lord, thank you for giving me eternal life through Jesus. Give me strength and power to overcome all temptations.
