20 Oct 18 Days of Prayer: Day 18

Luke 10:18-20 – Jesus replied, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”

Main Point: God has given you authority through His Holy Spirit to overcome the schemes of the enemy. This picture is of the hard, fast fall that Satan experiences when his attacks fail due to a believer standing strong in the Spirit of God. When it comes to your day-to-day relationships, remember that the enemy does not have to distract you from honoring God. You have been given authority to say the name of Jesus and the enemy will flee from you, so no spiritual darkness could ever harm your soul.

Prayer Point: “Lord over everything, thank You for empowering me to live by Your Spirit. Thank you that I will see miracles happen in my relationships, but even more so, thank You that I have experienced the greatest miracle – salvation. I rejoice in this! I pray that I would be able to bring others into eternity with me. In Your name that has all authority, amen.”
