Do you wonder how you become untouchable by the evil one?
Believe the Word! It is not enough to use the name of Jesus. What is required is faith in the name of Jesus. Do not be like the sons of Sceva in Acts 19 who used the name of Jesus, only to be beaten up and wounded by the spirit they tried to resist. Jesus' name is not magic, nor incantation. Likewise, you cannot follow someone else's faith. You must believe for yourself and act upon what the scriptures say.
Therefore, meditate and immerse yourself day and night with scriptures that describe who you are and how you are to live. Know them, live them, and be them. Here are a few :
LUKE 10:19 Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.
3 JOHN 1:2 Beloved, I pray that in every way you prosper and enjoy good health, even as your soul prospers.
1 JOHN 5:2-5 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome. For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
2 PETER 1:3-11 His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins. Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to confirm your calling and election, for if you practice these qualities you will never fall. For in this way there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
