And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease (Matthew 10:1).
Jesus gave the disciples power over demonic forces and over sickness and disease. This was before He shed Hid blood. They went in the power of His name. The disciples were old covenant people, relying on the Law of Moses.
As a child of God, you have the very power of God at your disposal. No one on the earth has more authority over Satan and his works than you do. You have a better covenant than the disciples had at the time Jesus made this promise of power to them. IF the disciples had power over the enemy and over sickness and disease, then you have even more!
The Old Covenant was set in force by animal blood and had to be renewed yearly by priestly ceremony. Jesus is now your High Priest, and has offered one sacrifice to forever keep you cleansed from sin and to give you constant access into the presence of the Father. The Old Covenant folk were servants. You are a son or daughter of the Most High!
You are seated in a position of authority, far above the powers of darkness that ever seek to hinder and malign. You have the use of the name of Jesus on a much broader scale than the disciples had. You have the power of the spoken Word of God at your disposal. You have the blood of Jesus, which has the ability to destroy every bondage.
Demons tremble before believers who know their rights and privileges in Christ and who decide to walk in purity and holiness. Sickness cannot remain in the body of the believer who decides to seek first the kingdom of God, and walk in the light of the spoken Word of God.
Rise up today and walk in the inheritance that belongs to you. Don’t allow doubt or fear any place in you. Resist the devil and his forces and watch them flee. Set yourself against sickness and disease and command it to go in the name of Jesus. You have the power of the resurrected Christ behind you today. You have the Father’s smile. You have the boldness of the Greater One within.
God is for you! He has freely given you all things. Rise up to the level of life provided for you in Christ today. Mountains have to move. Circumstances must bow to the Word of God. Demon must obey that Name!
You are a walking vessel of honor, capable of setting men and women free with the power of God. Obey the prompting of the Spirit today. Allow Him to use His power through you to set others free.
