"Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. "
Do you know that as a believer in Christ, you are extremely supernatural natural and you have authority over the enemy?
The devil is for real , who “as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Pet. 5:8). But we, as believers, are not called to cower in fear, for God’s eternal Word proclaims that “greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4).
In Christ, we have authority over the devil and all his cohorts. In Christ, we have authority to tread upon the lion and the cobra. The fowler’s snares shall be foiled and the hunter shall be the hunted. Our role in this increasingly dangerous world isn’t to be passive and indifferent, waiting to be devoured by the roaring lion. We are endued with power and authority to hunt down the roaring lion !
The Bible records the account of how Samson was in the vineyards of Tinman when suddenly “a young lion roared against him” (Judg. 14:5). Now, what would you do if you were suddenly ambushed by a lion ?
While most of us would probably either take flight or freeze, Samson instinctively rose to fight and Word of God testify that : “ the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him, and he rent him as he would have rent a kid, and he had nothing in his hand” (Judg. 14:6). Now, that’s taking authority! The hunter came at Samson but found itself the hunted!
Sometime later, Samson passed by the lion’s carcass and saw a swarm of bees and some honey in it. So he scooped out some of the honey and ate it. It was from this experience that Samson came up with this riddle, “Out of the eater came forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness” (Judg. 14:14).
Listen Church, instead of being eaten by the lion, Samson obtained something sweet to eat. What is the spiritual truth for us today? Out of every evil and negative thing the devil throws at you today, God will make something sweet for you. Your giants will be as bread to you. God will turn every bitter adversity into sweet honey for you !
What coming to kill you today will be the reason of provision tomorrow !
