Daily Devotional 30th January 2021: Exercise your God given authority.

“Now you understand that I have imparted to you all my authority to trample over his kingdom. You will trample upon every demon before you and overcome every power Satan possesses. Absolutely nothing will be able to harm you as you walk in this authority.” Luke 10:19 (TPT)

If you read these words in your Bible especially if you have a Bible that has annotations, you’ll see that these words are written in red which is an indication that they are direct words of Jesus. Jesus said, “I have given you all my authority so you can trample over the kingdom of darkness and overcome whatever it is the devil brings against you.” He says nothing will be able to harm you as you walk in this authority. Beloved, the only way to withstand the onslaughts of the wicked one is to walk in your authority.

Now think about this! Jesus, the Creator of the heavens and the earth and all things within it, both seen and unseen, has given you His authority. This authority is given for one purpose only: to exercise it whilst you are still on earth. Of what use is all that power and authority if it is not used?

Child of God, now more than ever before, you need to put on the whole armor of God and exercise your God-given authority! Take charge of your mind, your family, your business, your finances, your job, your ministry, your health, your marriage, and every other area of your life where the enemy is attacking! Take back that territory and stop the enemy from running roughshod over your life. Jesus has given you authority, exercise it! It does not matter the raging of the enemy, it does not matter the economic postulations, predictions, or the policies in place; you will soar above them.

As you walk in your authority, you will experience His manifest power in every area of your life. God will perfect you, He will establish you, He will strengthen you and He will settle you. Grace will speak for you in every area of your life.
