“...behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you...” (c) Luke 10:19, AMP (italics and emphasis mine)
The traffic officer may not have physical powers (strength) to stop a 16 wheeler truck; but when he lifts his hand to motion the truck to stop, it does. You see, the traffic officer has the authority to stop the truck AND the power of the government (or crown for UK) stands behind him and as long as he is enlisted, he is trusted with this authority to do good.
As Christians, and ministers of the Gospel, we have the authority in the name of Jesus Christ (and the power of the Almighty God behind, beside and in-front of us); all we have to do is ‘speak’ to the circumstance in the name of Jesus. So the next time you face a situation, remember you have the authority (and the power of God) at your disposal—use it.
