Knowing & Walking in Your Spiritual Authority – Part IV

Luke 10:19 (KJV) 19 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.

Here’s another scripture where Jesus tells us that He has given us power over the enemy.

The first word power is exousia which means delegated authority. The second power is dunamis which means the dynamic, miraculous power of God. Dunamis is the same word we get dynamite from. This covers it all!

We have been given everything we need to be overcomers on planet earth but it all functions through faith. That means you can live and die and never walk in the power and authority that God has for you because you have to first believe that He has given it and then you have to believe that He has given it to you to use and operate by your faith.

I think many people disconnect when they hear teaching like this because they don’t believe that God has already given this power and authority to His people since they don’t see it operating in their lives. They forget that there’s a God-part and a man-part to everything when operating in the things of God.

Too many Christians want to leave it all up to God and take no responsibility for what happens in their lives. This is nonsense and simply not true. God never intended to live our lives for us. He expects us to seek Him and His ways and be led by the Holy Spirit in all we do.
