KEY SCRIPTURE: Luke 10:19 KJV “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”.
What is the power of the devil or demons? Some Christians claim Satan and the devils don’t have power. This is a very wrong assertion. The Lord Jesus Himself admitted the enemy has some power. He has power to make people sick, cause calamities and even kill certain individuals. The following scripture talks about our deliverance from the dominion of darkness. Col 1:13 KJV” Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son” Once again the Bible makes mention of the power of the devil. He adds that the Christian has been delivered from the power of the devil.
In relation to the Christian what is this power of the devil.? The power of the devil is his ability to mess up men’s lives but in the absence of God’s power Please note: Satan or demonic power is spiritual darkness, whiles God power is spiritual light. Darkness will never stand in the presence of light. Satan or the demons are very strong only when God’s power is not present. John 1:5 KJV” And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not”. What brings God’s power into operation? Our faith in God’s word releases God’s power (we express our faith by acting on the word and through aggressive prevailing prayer). In the moment of demonic attack just turn on your faith, by acknowledging what God has said, and rest peacefully on it.
The demons know very well that in the presence of the power of God they are absolutely helpless. They would do everything to cause the Christian to mistrust the word of God. The spirit or demons of the air(Eph 2:2) communicate to the mind that God would not honor His word. Be alert to refuse such a word. . An acceptance of any such suggestions would keep God’s power away. This would make God’s word ineffective. Decide that you would trust God’s word, no matter how much that everything seems physically impossible.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for your word. Through my faith in your word, satanic or demonic power is made useless. I am at peace with myself and reign in life by your power as I speak and act on God’s word in faith.
