We can learn from these scriptures our power over the kingdom of darkness, is from the Lord himself. Who has given us power and authority over all devils, in all situations. We can also learn who we are in Christ, and that we are His fellow workers in the world today. We are His witnesses, chosen to bear much fruit, we are anointed and sealed by God himself. So we do not need to fear in battle, or fear whatever the Lord has called us to do, we have authority and power over all the power of the enemy.
