“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

LIGHT FOR NOW: You are in the sphere and domain of authority in Christ that is far above all principalities and powers.

The believer in Christ, the man that is born of God reigns in Christ. The terminology “reign in Christ” simply means to exercise all the rights, privileges, power and authority you have in Christ. It is enforcing the reality of redemption. Part of that reign in Christ or the authority you have to exercise which is a benefit of redemption is your authority of devils and demons, Satan, the enemy and his cohorts. For you to exercise authority over something already shows that you are high in rank and hierarchy over that thing; that thing is subject to you. That thing you have authority over is under your feet. Whatever you have authority over has no power over you; you rather have power over it. If you are in authority over something, it means you are in charge over that thing, that thing cannot be measured up or compared to you. All of the above is a reality you have in redemption above Satan, demons and devils. In other words:

  • You are high in rank and hierarchy over Satan, and his cohorts. You operate a sphere of authority that is far above all principalities and powers.
  • Satan, demons and devils are subject to you.
  • Satan, demons and devils are under your feet.
  • Satan, demons and devils have no power over you; you rather have power over them because you are the one in authority.
  • Satan, demons and devils can’t be measured up or compared to you where authority and power is concerned. You are in charge and in a realm of power above them all.

If all the above is the reality of the believer, then why have most believers accredit so much power to the devil and less power to themselves? If the above is your reality, where do most people get the mindset that at twelve midnight, Satan is very powerful, and they have to wake up every twelve midnight to engage in battle or in a combat with the devil? Why have they made Satan that powerful in their mind that they have to combat with him every twelve midnight? Ignorance is the problem; they don’t know what they have in Christ and who they are in Christ. You are in the domain of power and authority. Satan is subject to you, except you allow him use your authority to deal with you based on your ignorance of that authority. You are in authority. Glory!

INSTRUCTION: Know your realities in Christ.

CONFESSION: I declare that I am in authority; therefore I render Satan and his activities redundant and ineffective, in Jesus Name, Amen.

QUOTE: You are in a sphere of authority higher than any other sphere and hemisphere.
