That means Jesus’ Authority is given and available to us to confront every enemy that rises up against us. Remember that He promised that nothing by any means shall hurt you. The willing sacrifice that Jesus made has redeemed us from the hand of the enemy. He has given the whole world access to eternal life. Amen.
The Greek word for “power” is exousia, which refers to ‘delegated power or authority along with the right to use it’; not quite adequately translated by the word “power” or “authority” alone. The exousia of Jesus is already stressed previously in the same gospel (Matthew 7:29; 10:1, 7-8; 11:27; 22:43-44; 24:35)
According to Jesus and the teaching of the Bible, we have been given authority to carry out the purposes of God in advancing His Kingdom, healing the sick, and defeating the works of Satan and the powers of darkness.
The Bible teaches that God’s Sovereignty is an essential aspect of Who He is, that God has supreme Authority and absolute power over ALL things. And “Yes!” God is very much active, despite our perplexity. Scripture says, God works “ALL things according to the counsel of His will” (Ephesians 1:11).
Claim your portion. Amen.
