Understanding Kingdom Authority

BIBLE MEDITATION:

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

A police officer weighing 160 pounds may effectively stand in front of a tanker truck with an uplifted hand say, “Stop, in the name of the law.” Now what does he stop that truck with – his own power?  No.  Authority. The police officer certainly couldn’t stop any vehicle with his physical force. He is appealing to an authority greater than himself — the law — to back him up.

Your authority over Satan is the same way. Jesus said, “I give you authority over all the power of the enemy.”

Who is stronger, you or Satan?  Satan. You cannot overcome him with your strength. But your authority does not rest in your strength. Who has more authority, you or Satan?  You.  Jesus said, “I give you authority over all the power of the enemy.”  That’s the reason the Bible says, “Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”  Not because you’re stronger, but because Jesus is stronger.

You can overcome Satan Kingdom Authority from God. And you have His authority as a child of the King to overcome every attack of Satan. 

ACTION POINT:

Today and every day, make this declaration. Say to the devil, “Satan in the name of Jesus, through His shed blood, by the power of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. I come against you. I resist you and every demonic spirit.  I command you get away from me and my family. I command you to leave.”
