Luke 10:19 (NIV®)
“I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.”
On the cross, Jesus defeated Satan and his kingdom for time and eternity. It’s an irreversible, complete, and total victory. But Satan hasn’t been banished from our world yet, and you and I are left to bring about that enforcement. We are still in the midst of that task, but we’re not left without authority and power. The greatest tool our adversary has against us is deception. I have a friend who was a missionary in Kenya for many years and lived in the midst of the wildlife of that nation. She said when the lions become too old to hunt effectively they simply roar to intimidate their prey. You know that the lions who roar are too old to be truly dangerous. First Peter 5:8 says that our adversary is “like a roaring lion.” He may be scary, but we’ve been given the resources to overcome the power of our enemy.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the victory on the cross. Thank You for the authority You’ve given in the name of Jesus. I stand against Satan and every plan he may have today to disrupt Your purposes in my life. Thank You that You have given me everything I need to be an overcomer. In Jesus’ name, amen.
