“Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you” (Luke 10:19).

We should not hear these words as a license to practice reckless behavior but as an assurance of God’s faithful provision and protection. The cup from which we drink and the cross we carry, while sometimes bearing the bite and sting of hardship, are metaphors offered by a victorious Savior, not instruments of destruction from a defeated enemy.
