Exercising Authority over Satan at Work and Elsewhere, Part 8
Many times situations happen in our lives which we do not know how or why they take place. The main source of conflict is Satan. He and those evil angels under his command can work through various situations. These evil entities also put ideas into people’s heads, which people think are their own ideas, to bring about Satan’s desires. It is also for possible for people things to have demonic spirits in them. Jesus has given those, who are in Christ, authority over all the power of the enemy.
Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases (Luke 9:1).
Elsewhere - The Weather - Merrill
One day Merrill took Dan to work. It was raining very hard. When Dan was about to get out of the car Merrill said, “Wait, let’s see if this storm is of the enemy or not.” Merrill rebuked the storm in the name of Jesus and the weather cleared right up.
The disciples came back to Jesus after ministering in the country side and said, “Even the devils are subject to us.” Jesus said, “Don’t rejoice that the devils are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in the Book of Life.” Reader, is your name written in the Book of Life? If you are not sure that your name is already recorded in the Book of Life, or if you know your name is not in the Book of Life, then right now you can repent of your sins and invite Jesus into your life. A sample prayer is, “Lord Jesus Christ, forgive me of my sin and come into my heart.”
