Nothing Shall Hurt You

LUKE 10:19 NKJ 19 "Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

If you will accept it and believe it, here is a promise of Jesus that will protect you from everything harmful.

The choice is yours. You can choose to believe it, and allow God to bring it to pass in your life. Or, you can refuse to believe it, live in doubt, and shut the door on what God desires in your life.

Someone might say, "But I just had an accident and my finger was cut off and it really hurt me."

No, the real you, is still intact. The real you is not really harmed. For the real you is not your body. The real you is the person who lives in your body.

So even if you were killed because of your testimony for Jesus Christ, the promise would still be true: it would not hurt YOU. You would simply be promoted to Heaven to be with Jesus.

(It would be wrong to limit the promise of Luke 10:19 to only our spirit, for our body certainly is important for our earthly activity. Yet it is also wrong to be too body-centered in our thinking. We are much more than just a body.)

We must believe this promise of Jesus for it to work fully in our lives. God does not force His blessing and help on us. We must cooperate by believing His Word.

But when we accept this promise, embrace it, and fully believe it, then God's power is released to protect us from everything that would hurt us.

God has made the provision. Jesus paid for your protection. Now you must (actively) receive it. You must believe it! Then God will bring it to pass.

If you will actively believe, confess, and stand on this promise from Jesus, your life will be protected from many evils that would otherwise harm you.

Whatever happened to you in the past, whether you understand it or not, just let it go. Forgive the past, then forget it. It is time to move forward. Choose now to believe this promise of God and change your future for the better.

SAY THIS: I accept and believe the promise of Jesus: Nothing shall hurt me!
