2 Cor 10:5-6: Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. KJV

Matt 28:18 :18 Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. NIV

As a young boy I was exposed to many stories that ended up creating in me a mindset that gives Satan most power. Even though I knew God was more powerful than Satan, I was more afraid of Satan than God and indeed was more conscious of Satan. I had more of a devil consciousness than a God consciousness. This kind of mindset in Africa has given room to a lot of demonic control even among Christians.

There is no doubt in my heart right now that such a mindset about the spirit realm (one that ascribes excessive power to the devil) is entirely wrong. This is an example of how much the mind of a man can be configured in such a way that it hinders the expression of the life of God and gives demons undue legal authorization to exert power in the life of believers.

All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Christ; this means He is the only one with legal right to exert any form of power in both realms. That is why we can bind demons when we sense their operation in lives or in territories; because they do so illegally and we (as God’s agents of righteousness) have all legal right to bind them.

Go into today walking in the reality of this truth; all authority has been given unto Jesus; you are His representative here on earth (see 1 John 4:17b).

Prayer: father I thank you for the authority I have in your name. I pray you help me truly walk in this authority, in Jesus name
