Psalms 91:13 NKJV

You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.“


-God has given us dominion from the beginning over the fish of the sea, birds of the heavens, livestock, over all the earth and every creeping thing on the earth (Genesis 1:26). God has also given us authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will hurt us (Luke 10:19). He has given us power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and disease (Matthew 10:1). We should therefore not live in fear for we have dominion over every threat that looks like the lion since we have the power of the Holy Spirit in us Who is greater than the enemy who is in the world (1 John 4:4). 


The lion is a mighty creature that retreats before nothing (Proverbs 30:30). One of the attributes of God is His omnipotence symbolising that He is all powerful. At the same time we read in Scripture that God is merciful and compassionate. God described as both the Lion and the Lamb, showing His power and merciful nature. Therefore, He is the victorious and conquering Lion of the tribe of Judah and the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. He has power over the devil who prowl around like a roaring lion, and all creation is subject to Him. We are reminded then to resist the devil and stand in faith for we are called to eternal glory (1 Peter 5:8-11). We have been joined to Christ as co-heirs with Him and have the blessing of eternal life once we believe in Him. In this blessing those who bless us are blessed and those who curse us are cursed (Numbers 24:9). We are therefore more than conquerors in Him who gives us peace for He is the Prince of peace. 


Dear Lord Jesus You are Merciful and Compassionate, full of kindness and love, may You have mercy on us and grant us Your peace that surpasses no human understanding. Though sometimes we go through turbulent moments we believe in Your power as the Lion of Judah and Your mercy and grace as the Lamb of God. Thank You for Your redemptive work on the cross to grant us the gift of salvation and eternal life. All our hope and trust is in You dear Lord and God. We are more than conquerors in You dear Jesus, may You grant us victory and break every delay in our lives, families, churches, communities and nation. May You bless us and keep us dear Lord Jesus. May You shine Your face towards us and be gracious unto us. May You show Your countenance unto us and give us peace. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us now and forevermore. Amen
