“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 (KJV)

Knowing that you are in charge makes life easy. The kingdom of darkness, being led by the devil, will always spread false information to deceive people into believing that they are so powerful, to cause harm and destruction (John 8:44). Thus, they enslave people with fear, poverty, sickness, sin, discouragement, death, etc.

Dear beloved, meditate on the opening scripture and believe that you are in charge because Jesus Christ has given you power over the devil and his machination. Do not ever forget it, so that you can keep putting your authority and power to use to always win the battles of life. Remember that all the power of the enemy cannot hurt you if you keep treading on him and his cohort of darkness every day.

Beloved, the kingdom of darkness knows that you have power over them but they will still tempt you to know if you really know who you are in Christ Jesus (Matthew 4:4–11). They will tempt you with sin because they know sin can make you ineffective. Therefore, avoid sin and live in holiness, so that the Holy Spirit will be happy working with you and making the power in you always active over the enemy.

Beloved, be fervent in prayer and speak in tongues to edify yourself every day (1 Corinthians 14:4). Keep believing in the Word of God and preach it, and the signs Jesus Christ spoke about will follow you, and the kingdom of darkness will always be afraid of you because you are always on fire for the Lord (Mark 16:17–18). Hallelujah! You are an overcomer!

Prayer Point: My dear heavenly Father, thank You for giving me power over the devil and the kingdom of darkness.

I will keep preaching the gospel and exercising authority over the devil and his kingdom, for many people to be saved and teach them how to also use their authority in Christ Jesus. Amen!
