The Scriptures say “Jesus sustains everything by the mighty power of His command” (Hebrews 1:3). Jesus has unimpeachable authority. The Roman government tried to intimidate him. False religion tried to silence Him. The Devil tried to kill Him. All failed!
Jesus is the command center of the galaxies. He occupies the Oval Office. He stopped the waves with a word. He spoke and a tree withered. He spoke again and a basket became a banquet. Jesus said in Matthew 11:27, “All things have been handed over to Me by My Father.”
All things includes Satan. Jesus outranks him in every situation. He must obey Jesus, and he knows it. The Bible says that prayers offered in the name of Jesus have “divine power to demolish strongholds” (2 Corinthians 10:4). Is Satan setting up a stronghold in your life? Lift up a prayer and unleash the demolition power of Jesus!
