Topic: The Believer's Authority II [Thursday 12, October 2017]

Memorise: “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.” - Luke 10:19

Read: Luke 10:17-20

17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.

18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

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.

20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

Bible In One Year: Matthew 25-26. Hymn: Sing Hymn 12 - My Hope Is Build On Nothing Less

MESSAGE:

A sit was pointed out yesterday, the power and authority which Jesus Christ has made available to believers cannot be imagined by natural minds. The story was told of a man who inherited magical powers to ward off evil, and dispel whoever might want to harm him on a journey which he set for himself. As he started on the journey, he sighted robbers, instead of putting the magic powers into use, he started shivering and cringing. His wife then burst into a song "encouraging"her husband to keep on shivering because that is how he usually shiver to kill hundreds and thousands. The robbers, taking the song to be true of the man, ran away for their lives. And that was how the woman saved the day for her husband.

The lesson we should learn from this story is that, though the authority to conquer the devil and his agents are available, unless we exercise it in holy boldness, we remain as powerless as though it wasn't available. To exercise authority over sickness, demonic oppression, poverty and all unpleasant situations, we need to be believers indeed by being born-again through faith in Jesus Christ our Saviour. Also, we need to live according to the Word of God. We must be doers of the Word, because it is the authority of the Word that we honour that can help us in times of trouble.

Action Point: Begin to exercise faith in the Son of the Living God, and you will experience the supernatural.
