Luke 10:19-20

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. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.

Encouraging Words
Our loving and merciful God does not just call us to be His followers, His warriors, and to take up His cross, without also giving us the power to do so. He promised His disciples, and us, that He will give us the authority, and the power, to stand up to the enemy in the spiritual realm who will do whatever they can to thwart the building of His kingdom. No matter what is thrown at us, we can resist it. No matter how difficult it might become to stand firm for our God, He will give us what we need to continue to be steadfast for Him. But as Jesus told His disciples, this is not what we should be rejoicing about. We should be rejoicing that we are His children, that we have been grafted into His divine and royal family as adoptees of God, that we will be spending eternity with our brothers and sisters in Christ and the heavenly host, worsh­iping and glorifying our God. Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me, the sinner!
