“The Believers’ Authority”

Key Verse

  “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).

Text — Luke 10:17-24


Our Bible text of  today, reveals the rare and unparalleled privilege at the beckon of the believer in Christ. “Behold, I give unto you power…” In talking about the believer’s authority, we are talking about the right or power to enforce rules, laws, policies or orders. Christians are authorized to do what Jesus would do if He were physically on earth. We have authority over Satan, demons, occultic forces, and sicknesses. Jesus Christ categorically said, “…In my name shall they cast out devils.” What an awesome, indescribable power is given to believing  boys and girls in Christ Jesus! It simply means you have the right to give orders, and enforce compliance on every issue as God’s child.

That is the authority you wield. You need not be afraid of such things as academic failure, sickness,  witches, wizards, or any dark powers. Ensure you are born again, and you will be able to exercise the power of attorney over “all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” You are unstoppable, indestructible, indomitable and unconquerable!


Do what Jesus would do


Rise up, claim and use your unfailing authority in Christ.

Prayer for today

 Lord, help me to use the authority you’ve given me.
