Jesus Gives You Authority

“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

The word “power” is repeated in this passage in Luke, but it has two different meanings. The first “power” is from the Greek word “exousia” and it has the meaning of authority. The second “power” is from the Greek word “dunamis.” We get the English word for “dynamite” from this word.

Jesus gives us authority over the force of the enemy. We do not defeat the devil with strength; we defeat him with authority. Is Satan wiser than you? Yes, with a perverted wisdom. Is he stronger than you? Yes, with a malevolent strength. Is Satan more powerful than you? Yes, but you stop him when you stand against him with the authority God has given you. And he knows that.

When you begin to fight your battles, not in your strength, but in God’s strength, then you are going to see Satan begin to cower before you.
