Take Authority!

“For though we walk in the flesh [as mortal men], we are not carrying on our [spiritual] warfare according to the flesh and using the weapons of man. The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ” 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, Amplified.

What a powerful verse!

We have authority over the enemy, and over every plot and scheme that he tries to devise against us. We have authority over every spirit that is not of God. It is time we use what we’ve been given to keep the enemy under our feet by walking in the authority of Jesus. If a dog was attacking my daughter, I would command that dog to get! To go right now and leave my daughter alone! The enemy is like a little dog with no teeth. He has a loud bark with no bite. He can’t do anything but make a bunch of noise. But God has given us the power to tell him to go! To get and leave us alone in the name of Jesus! To leave our family alone in the name of Jesus! To leave our sister in Christ alone in the name of Jesus!

It’s time we wake up and realize this is a spiritual battle, and the only way we can win is in the spirit. Try to come against the enemy in the flesh and you will lose every single time. We have to war in the spirit. We have to put on every piece of our spiritual armor (see Ephesians 6:13-18). We have to do what’s necessary to maintain his defeat and our victory! He’s not going to just let you walk in total victory without putting up a fight my dear. If you think he’s just going to lie back and let you receive and enjoy all of God’s promises without coming against you, you’re sadly mistaken. It’s going to be a messy fight, but in the end you win if you don’t give up. So, pick up your spiritual weapons. Straighten your knees. Lift up your head and stare the enemy right in the face, and declare these words:

“Satan I rebuke you in the name of Jesus. I command you to take your hands off of my body, my mind, off my family and friends! I submit to God and I resist you and you flee from me now! I take authority over every principality and power of darkness. I put on the full armor of Christ, and I take my place in the name of Jesus. I cast down every imagination that tries to exalt itself against the knowledge of God and I bring into captivity every thought in the obedience of Christ. Thank you Lord. I command my day to be blessed. I command everything in my life to line up with God’s word in Jesus name. Hallelujah. Glory to God. Amen.”

(Read James 4:7)
