“So Jesus healed many people who were sick with various diseases, and he cast out many demons. But because the demons knew who he was, he did not allow them to speak.” (Mark 1:34, NLT)

Do you know the authority you have? Better yet, does the enemy recognize who you are and the authority you carry? This passage says that because the demons knew who Jesus was, he did not allow them to speak. John 14:12 says: “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father.”

There should be an authority that accompanies you that the enemy recognizes so that when you speak, all of hell comes to a stop. You have the ability and the authority to quiet the enemy in your life and in the lives of others. It’s time to activate that authority and as you do, the demons will know who you are and they will know that they aren’t allowed to speak in your life.

You have the authority to quiet the enemy!
