Victory is Mine!

I remember singing that song in church nearly every Sunday as a child growing up, but as an adult it seems to hit different.

You will tread upon the lion and cobra, the young lion and the serpent (dragon in the KJV) you will trample down. –Psalm 91:13

Did you know that in the word, God takes us from the subject of our being protected by Him and puts emphasis on the authority in His Name that has been given to us as believers.

Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall injure you. –Luke 10:19

Christians have been given authority over the enemy. He does not have authority over us! However, our authority over the enemy is not automatic.

What does the Word mean when it says, “We will tread on the lion, the young lion, the cobra, and the dragon?” This is an analogy of things that are harmful in our lives. These terms describe the types of satanic oppression. So, what do these terms mean to us today?

“Lion problems”—are bold and loud—that come out in the open and hit us face-on, like a car accident or an unexpected bill at the end of the month. God says that we will tread on them—they will not tread on us.

“Young lion problems”—come against us to harass and destroy gradually. Subtle negative thoughts that tell us we will not survive or that our spouse no longer loves us are examples.

“Cobra problems”—seem to sneak up on us like a snake in the grass throughout our day while minding our own business. They are what we might call an undercover attack—a deceptive scheme that keeps us blinded until it devours us.

“Dragon problems”—Fictitious or extinct—like a dragon—have you ever had a fear that was totally ungrounded? A figment of your imagination? Sure, we all have. These are the fears that power anxiety.

No longer are we to put up with the fears that once gripped our hearts and left us powerless at the sight of the evil. God has given us His Power of Attorney, and these problems now have to submit to the authority of His Name. We just have to wield that power and declare victory!

Lord, I ask that you Help me learn to use the authority in Your name that has been given to me as a believer. I declare I have victory in my life and over my life. In the name of Jesus. Amen

Today, I affirm that victory is mine today and no lion, young lion, cobra, or dragon will have any authority over me. I am fearless because the devil is already defeated!
