(The Devil Has Been Rendered Completely Helpless)
TO THE BIBLE – Luke 10:19
“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.”
There’s no reason for any Christian to be afraid of the devil, for he’s already defeated! In Matthew 28:18, Jesus said, “…All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” Notice He said “all authority,” not “some authority,” meaning there’s none left for satan. He’s been completely paralysed and rendered helpless by Jesus. The reason some people still live in fear of satan, and what they believe he can do against them is their ignorance of the Scriptures. They unwittingly arrogate power to the devil, not recognising that he’s been fully paralysed!
Jesus despoiled him and his demons; He dispossessed them! Satan and his cohorts were stripped of their armour and rendered helpless by Jesus. Colossians 2:15 says, “Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.” Jesus made an open show, a spectacle, of principalities and powers. That means He paraded satan and his demons as prisoners of war, thoroughly beaten and paralysed.
No wonder He could tell us, “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” (Luke 10:19). His victory was for you. He gave us the victory with which He overcame satan, and commissioned us to cast out devils in His Name (Mark 16:17). Therefore, no matter what happens around you—in your life, at home, or at school—refuse to fear. Satan has been firmly placed under your feet!
1 John 3:8; James 4:7; Mark 16:17
Dear Father, I thank you for the courage, boldness, confidence, and faith that your Word infuses my spirit with as I meditate on it. How thrilling to know that you’ve placed all things, including satan and his cohorts under my feet! I walk in victory and dominion today, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
