Lately, the Holy Spirit has been teaching me about the authority I have as a believer in Christ Jesus. God told me it is time for me to mature in walk with Him and start using the authority and power Christ has given me. When it comes to spiritual warfare, many of us have been slacking. We have gotten into this “The Lord will fight all my battles for me” mentality. And yes, there are some battles God will fight for us, but there are some battles we have to fight ourselves by exercising the authority Jesus has given us in His name.
Jesus has given us power over the enemy! We don't have to put up with His demonic attacks! If the enemy is attacking your finances, family, loved ones, job, business, or ministry, fight him back in the spirit! Take spiritual authority over him by using the keys of the Kingdom of heaven (binding and loosing)! Use the Sword of the Spirit and cut him down with the Word of God! Use your authority!
To help you exercise your authority, I have written some scriptural declarations you can recite daily.
I have been given the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven and whatever I bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatever I loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Matthew 16:19
I have the power to cast out unclean spirits and heal all manner of disease. Matthew 10:1
For I am not ignorant of the enemy’s devices. 2 Corinthians 2:11
Signs, wonders, and miracles follow me because I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus came to destroy every work of the devil in my life. 1 John 3:8
In Jesus name I have been given authority to cast out demons.
My authority is given to me by Jesus Christ who is far above all rule and authority. Ephesians 1:21
The gates of hell shall not prevail against me. Matthew 16:18
I have the power to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and nothing by any means shall hurt me. Luke 10:19
I am sitting in heavenly places with Christ Jesus and Christ is high above all principality and power. Ephesians 1:21
For the weapons of my warfare are not carnal, but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:4
I cast down evil and vain imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and I bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5
I wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, and against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12
I give thanks to God who He gives me the victory over every spiritual attack and battle though my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57
