Power is essentially for productive work. God won't give you power just because you want to cast out evil, rather, He'd give you power to overcome any evil that tries to stop your good works. In Luke 10:19, Jesus gave His disciples power to thread upon all the wickedness of the devil, such that nothing shall by any means hurt them. Earlier in Luke 10:1, He appointed 70 other disciples and gave them assignments. These means that He didn't give them power until He gave them an assignment.
I believe this is why many Christians are still powerless. They are wasting power on the devil, instead of investing it on good works. Jesus used the phrase "thread upon" to explain to us that we can actually walk through the valley and the shadow of death without stopping our work. A speed bump doesn't determine the destination of a moving car, it only reduces the speed for a moment. Satan may be a speed bump to destiny, but he can't stop us from reaching our destination.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; POWER IS NOT JUST FOR KEEPING THE DEVIL AWAY FROM YOU, IT'S ALSO FOR DRAWING YOU CLOSER TO GOD'S PLAN. Have a most fruitful day! In Jesus precious name!
