Behold, I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy. Nothing will harm you. Luke 10:19
The Bible teaches us that before sending out His disciples, Jesus first filled them with supernatural power to preach the gospel of the Kingdom, heal the sick, cure the lepers, raise the dead and cast out demons (Matthew 10:7-8). We live in times of evil, and our generation has been exposed to demonic forces never seen before. The good news is that when we go in the name of Jesus, it doesn’t matter if we are pastors, ministers, leaders or simply believers; all of us have power! As long as you have submitted to Jesus and are sent out by His authorities, you will have His power. To everyone that believes needs to experience the power in the name of Jesus, which is been released by faith. To all that believed we are protected by the power of God. This placed us above principalities and power. We have authority over the powers of the demon.
Maybe you’re thinking: Why do I go out to evangelize and my group doesn’t grow? There may be many reasons, but I ask you: where you sent out or did you send yourself? Perhaps your question may be: Why send people to evangelize, and the results are very poor? The answer is: Are they trained and equipped with power and authority? I invite you to go before God.
Pray with me
Heavenly Father, I recognize that there is power in being sent out, so wherever You send me, I go submitting to You and to my authorities, with a commitment to accountability, because I know that protects me and brings blessings. Today, I receive power and authority to preach the gospel of the Kingdom, to heal, revive and cast out demons. Holy Spirit, give me wisdom and discernment from heaven to always walk under authority. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
You will tread on the lion and cobra; you will trample the young lion and serpent.
they will pick up snakes with their hands, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not harm them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will be made well.Ezekiel 2:6
And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house
