And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. 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 10:17-19)
Today's Morsel: When I was in the infantry in Vietnam, we would have what we called a "Mad Minute." We knew that the enemy would usually attack just before day break, and so our commander would have us all rise early, get into our selected fighting positions, and on his command, we fired 3 to 4 clips of 90-120 rounds each into our selected sectors of fire. If any enemy was out there, they were sure to get hit. When is the last time you got up early and fired off about 90- 120 prayers into your selected sector of fire? There's an enemy trying to get into your perimeter. If Jesus saw him fall like lightning, what do you see him falling as?
Sing: Let God arise and your enemies be scattered; Let God arise and your enemies be scattered; Let God arise and your enemies be scattered; let God, let God, arise.
