Our significance or insignificance is related to who we follow
Our personal impressions of declining influence can daily hang around in our thoughts
We can get spun out with this & that in our experience
This lends to self-deprecation & why bear false witness.
Without Christ we are ineffective & can do nothing that has real meaning or lasting qualities
We’re exposed & time is chasing through our hands
The grim reaper plots to rob us & distort us of our eternal design of intimacy with Jesus
But Jesus says Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents & scorpions & over
all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
So how do we look & experience what God has given to us.
First we have the promise of safe passage as we walk on snakes & scorpions.
Shoot, face it, poisonous devil filled reptiles & insects are on the rise with mind boggling destruction
Only in Christ is there protection from every assault of the Enemy.
Does that means No one can put a hand on us? Yes, in Christ everything is good
What the evil one designs for our destruction. God designs for our good
Our significance & influence is not in us but in Jesus
So we pray in His name.
We count it all joy
We rejoice evermore
We in everything give thanks
We pray without ceasing (we pray with persistent perseverance) never giving up
We do what Jesus called us to do:
Leave your nets (leave all the soul traps) & follow Jesus
Lord, even the demons are subject unto us
(along with all their demonic traps)
through Your name. Lk 10:17
