Part of the Body of Christ
Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all. (Ephesians 1:20-23)
Every believer acknowledges that God is mighty, powerful, and great, but many do not realize that God's tremendous authority has been extended to believers through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Paul wrote in Ephesians 1:20-23 that when Jesus rose from the dead, the Father gave Him authority over all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named. Furthermore, God put all things under Jesus’s feet and made Him the head over the church, which is His body.
The church is the body of Christ. Jesus is the Head. He is the top part, and we are the bottom part. Since Satan has been put under Jesus’s feet, he is also under our feet.
Everything Satan tries to put on God’s people is under their feet. Sickness is under our feet. Lack is under our feet. Sin is under our feet. Fear is under our feet.
It's time for the church to realize who we are. Stop running in fear and stand in faith. Put your foot down on the devil's neck. He is under Jesus' feet, and he is under yours too.
Remember that you are united with Christ as part of His body, and He has won complete victory over the devil. It's up to us to enforce the victory Jesus has won. Act on it. Take your authority as part of the body of Christ. If Jesus didn't put up with Satan's foolishness, why do you?
Practical Application – You are part of Jesus’s body! Since Satan is under Jesus’s feet, he is also under yours. Stop acting like you’re defenseless against sin, sickness, and lack. Take your authority and remind the devil that he is under your feet!
