Luke 4:36–All the people were amazed and said to each other, “What words these are! With authority and power he gives orders to impure spirits and they come out!”
In that day, people experience attacks and oppression from demons. Jesus showed that He has great authority than the demons and He can order them to be quiet or to leave. The people had never seen this before. Demons and demonic attacks are no less prevalent today and we can see the evidence of their work possessing and oppressing people everywhere. Thankfully, the authority and power of Jesus Christ is no less today either. Jesus still has the authority over the demons and unclean spirits that He had in that day. Do we stand under the authority of Jesus Christ to escape the attacks of the devil?
Father, I know that You have all authority. You are the Holy One and I stand under Your authority. I pray that You will protect me from the fiery darts of the devil today and keep me safe. Only You can truly protect me and In Jesus’ name, I will stand on Your truth. Thank You for having all authority in heaven and on earth.
