Power Over The Enemy
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.
Jesus gave the disciples the power to heal the sick and authority over devils (Luke 9:1). In this verse, Jesus says, "and nothing shall by any means hurt you." The disciples were given this power not to lift up themselves, but to show the power of Jesus Christ. As Christians, we have the power to resist our enemy, which is the devil. Jesus said that He had given us power over all the power of the enemy. Satan wants to destroy our life and keep us from growing in our faith. The power that we have within us is Jesus Christ. The devil has no rule in our life because of the One living in us. However, he will tempt us with sin and try to get us away from the straight and narrow path. Since he cannot take away our salvation, he will try everything he can to destroy our life. Don't allow him to destroy your life because greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4). Be sober because the devil is always looking for an opportunity to destroy your life.
