Luke 10:19..Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy. and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
The promise in the scripture of today is a powerful one that when we know what it means to take the word of God seriously, we will not be afraid of any enemy. We have been given the power and all we need to do is to speak the word. Satan comes to us in a subtle way and what he does is to manipulate the word of God to his benefit. When Eve encountered him in the garden, the first thing he spoke to her was “Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” What were they supposed to eat then if they should not eat of every tree in the garden? You will agree with me that what Satan said did not make any sense. Why would God decorate a garden with every good tree, and then put Adam and Eve there just to take care of the garden without eating out of it? This is just an example for you to know that Devil is a liar and the father of lies. There is no truth in him. So when you know the word of God, you can demolish his words by the word of God and put him where he belongs.
Though Satan is the prince of the air, you have been given power over him. Use the word of God to overpower him. The Bible says “And they overcame him (Devil) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.(Rev 12:11). So you have the victory already and let him know that, so he can flee from you.
One of my children that got healed after being prayed for told me of her experience few days after she received her healing. She said the devil would whisper to her (many times) that she was not truly healed, but she maintained her stand that she was healed by quoting the word of God that says “I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me” Phil 4:19.. so she went ahead to continue to do what she could not do before until her healing was perfected. From this experience of her being healed from sickle cell disease, she has grown to love the LORD and His Word and the LORD is confirming His word to her day by day. When you RESIST the Devil, he will flee from you.
Beloved, let the word of God dwell richly in you so that you can overpower Satan by God’s word. Read the word and meditate on it and the word to use when Satan comes with his tactics, will be given to you by the Holy Spirit. The Word of God is fire and is a hammer that breaks the rock into pieces (Jeremiah 23:29), and it will bring solution to all your problems in Jesus Name, Amen,
Prayer..LORD empower me to be dependent on your word on a daily basis.
