“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: The power of God becomes the power of the believer at new birth. So, you are God’s power house and power station.
Ephesians 1:19-21 in The Passion Translation has been our main stay for now, it reads, “I pray that you will continually experience the immeasurable greatness of God’s power made available to you through faith. Then your lives will be an advertisement of the immense power as it works through you! This is the mighty power that was released when God raised Christ from the dead and exalted him to the place of highest honour and supreme authority in the heavenly realm! And now he is exalted as first above every ruler, authority, government, and realm of power in existence! He is gloriously enthroned over every name that is every name that is ever praised, not only in this age; but in the age that is coming!”
These words spoken by Paul or revealed by Paul here concerning Jesus relates to us in him. Hence, the new birth is a resurrection, because the resurrection power gave birth to us. Observe Paul’s saying that “this power is made available to you through faith”. The Amplified Version says “this power is in us and for us”. In other words, do you know that we house God’s resurrection power? Yes, we house God’s power. Reigning in Christ which includes reigning over devils means exercising our authority, dominion, right, privileges and power in Christ. Paul has made it clear to us that God’s power resides in us. So the born again man is God’s power house. You reign over devils because the power of God became yours at new birth. You operate the highest sphere of power. You are not in lack of power, and you are not in need of power. All the power you need or will ever need as a believer entered you at new birth. You are in the realm of power above all other realms of power. And that is why Satan, demons and devils cannot make noise where you are. If they make noise, shut them up and they will obey. You are in charge. God’s power is your power. Devils and demons are subjected to you because of this reality. Glory!
INSTRUCTION: Manifest who you are.
CONFESSION: I declare that I am in charge. Therefore, I give instructions and devils obey me, in Jesus Name, Amen.
