Greetings to all,
With the struggles of life come many questions for the Christian to ponder. Some of these questions may not specifically be made clear in Scripture. Questions like, why are not more people healed? Why do so many resist the Gospel?
There are so many questions we could think of that have no complete answer. However, there are some very clear answers that we can take to the bank. One of these is that God is using His people to crush Satan (Romans 16:20) and that Satan will eventually be put in a prison that will stop him from tormenting God’s people (Revelation 20).
Scripture is very clear about God’s people coming out on top. He has already called you victorious. Just the fact that you made it into the Kingdom of God proves that He has made a way for you to live an abundant life in Christ in harmony with his purposes.
Great authority has been granted to God’s people and as we live expectant, thankful lives we will understand what it means to live in a Kingdom that is identified by righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Luke 10:19 says, “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
You have great authority; speak to the mountain that the enemy has put in front of you and as you focus your eyes on Jesus, He will bring you through with a victor’s crown.
Love to all,
