"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." — Luke 10:19
God may not give us an easy journey to his promise, but he will give us a safe one! It will not be an easy thing we are given to overcome. It will not be a small foothill, but a mountain we are given to climb. But, we will overcome, and we will arrive at the top!
Your promise from God will not be uncontested by the world, the flesh or the devil. That is why God gives power to overcome.
The power that God gives us is in his word. It is alive and powerful. It will lead you, guide you, instruct you and strengthen you. The word of God will enable you to receive his promise of joy, peace and more than enough of everything you need. That is the abundant life Jesus died to give us.
