Colossians 1:13 declared that God “has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love” (NKJV). Power used in this case is literally translated authority. In other words, we have been delivered from the authority of darkness and placed into God’s Kingdom.

In a similar vein, Jesus used power when He proclaimed “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore and teach all nations” (Matt 28:18-19). That power was given to you as part of your inheritance in Christ Jesus, an inheritance secured for us when He defeated satan once for all through His death and resurrection. You have entered into this position of authority because you are in Him!

Jesus has delegated power or authority over satan to you as a believer. We, who are born of the Spirit of God, filled with the Spirit of God, and given the Word of God, have been conferred all the power necessary to carry out our spiritual authority here on earth. You are empowered to minister from a position of authority.

The work you do ministering to men and women seeking abortion and helping them choose life is infused with authority in the mighty name of Jesus — you are an absolute danger to satan who has no defense against you. Indeed, no weapon formed against you shall prosper!
