Though he’d certainly like you to believe otherwise, you have total and complete authority over the devil through Jesus!

Jesus said in Luke 10:19, “Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you” (AMPC).

When do you take authority?

Any time the devil tries to steal, kill and destroy anything in your life, including your peace, joy, protection, finances, family or health. You can cast out devils, lay hands on the sick, curse every wrong spirit and drive all of it out of your home and life in the Name of Jesus. Read Mark 16:17-18.

How do you take authority?

When Satan came against Jesus, He didn’t try to outthink the devil. He took authority over him with His words, speaking the words of God. You can do the same. Use the Name of Jesus, and command the devil to cease and desist. Curse wrong spirits and command them to leave in Jesus’ Name. The Bible says he has to flee when you do.
