Scripture Reading: Luk 10:19 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.
Reflections:The seventy two returned from their missionary journey completely amazed at how they subdued the demons they encountered. They needed to understand what this was all about. Jesus explains that it was because they have been given power to tread on serpents and scorpions. The word ‘Power’ in the Greek is ‘exousia’. It means several things including ‘the right to control’. Thus Jesus got the disciples to understand that they were able to establish their dominion over demons by reason of the right to control, delegated divinely to them. With this knowledge, the disciples were encouraged to establish their dominion anywhere they were ever going to find themselves. Just like the disciples, you also have the delegated right to bring conditions under control. Sally forth with that dominion now!
Prayer: Dear Lord, I thank you that I have dominion over demons.
Confession. I establish dominion over demons and their activities. I rebuke their works and cast them out of my life.
