Read: Luke 10:17-20
“…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 KJV)
A brother was on a flight, seated next to a woman whose whole body was tense with fear when they experienced turbulence in mid air. Concerned, at the lady’s intense fright, the brother firmly assured her that nothing will happen to the plane. He said “Don’t worry. I am on board; the Lord is on board the plane with us we would have a safe journey because He has promised that “nothing shall by any means hurt us”.
Once, when Jesus was in the boat with his disciples, He told them, “Let us cross over to the other side” (Mk 4:35). Believing they would cross over to the other side, He fell asleep in the stern. A great storm arose, but it could not rouse Him from His sleep, only the cries of His terrified disciples did. They forgot that since Jesus was in the boat with them nothing could hurt them
Three young Hebrew men believed that God would deliver them from the heathen King Nebuchadnezzar and said, “…our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king.” (Daniel 3:17) And in the midst of their fiery trial, their deliverer not only walked with them in the fire, He also delivered them from all harm.
Brethren, in the midst of your storm or fiery trial, because Jesus is with you, nothing shall by any means hurt you!
Prayer: Lord Jesus May I always have this full assurance that I am always safe because you have said you are with me always even unto the end of the earth. Amen.
PEACE ON EARTH!
