(You Have Authority Over Satan; Use It!)
TO THE BIBLE: Psalm 149:5-9
“Let the saints be joyful in glory; Let them sing aloud on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute on them the written judgment—This honor have all His saints. Praise the Lord!”
In Christianity, we’re not called to fight the devil. Satan, the devil, is our adversary, but he’s already defeated! He’s been judged, and we’re the ones authorised to execute his judgment! So, we don’t fight him; we execute the sentence that’s already been passed on him; it’s part of our heritage in Christ: “To execute on them the written judgment—This honor have all His saints. Praise the Lord!” (Psalm 149:9).
In John 16:11, Jesus said, “…the ruler of this world is judged”; that means Satan has been sentenced. Hallelujah! We have the responsibility to keep Satan where he belongs—under our feet! That’s why the Bible says to cast him out! You don’t struggle with Satan; just cast him out.
The resurrection of Jesus made a champion of you. The Bible says you’ve been raised together with Him, and made to sit together with Him in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6). You’re seated with Christ, far above principalities and powers. You occupy the place of authority in Christ, far above Satan and everything that’s connected to him. Glory to God!
1 John 4:4; James 4:7
I’m anointed with the Holy Spirit and with power! I’m superior to Satan and his demons, with the authority to execute judgment against them. I dominate and triumph over circumstances today and always, because the greater One lives in me! Glory to God!

Give orders to the devil right now. You can say: “Devil, in the name of Jesus Christ, I command you to quit your manoeuvres in my family, schoolwork, and in my relationships right now!”
