“And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.”- Luke10:17‬‬

One of the major things we receive as believers once we have accepted Jesus Christ is authority and power to dominate just like, John.1.12 says “as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:” 

The word lets us know that once you believe and receive Christ you have received power, because the Holy Ghost the one who endues with power is now at home in you now.   

Our opening text tells us about the joy in which the seventy came back with, because the devils were subject to them in the name of Jesus and this is the joy we also share in as believers, because we have received the same authority to rule and reign in Christ. 

The name of Jesus is the most potent and powerful name, and that name activates the authority of believers and even the devils and all other authorities are subject to this name according to Phil 2 vs 9-11

The believer’s authority over this world is in the name of Jesus Christ, the believer need not be scared or afraid to use the name of Jesus. In the name is the power and authority over every situation you might find yourself in. The authority is binding even over the devil and evil spirits just as we see in Acts.19.12 – so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them.

We have been given such authority as Believers, we must at all times exercise our authority, give no place to the devil to run carnage in your life or your family, put an end to such with authority. 

Take hold of your authority in Christ Jesus today and pray using that name commanding every situation and condition you desire a positive change in and around you and your prayer will be answered in the name of Jesus. Hallelujah.

Confession: I make bold to say today that I have authority in Christ and darkness and demonic powers are subject to me and I cause desirous changes to take place in my life today. Glory to God.
