Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.” And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.” – Lk 10:17-18
Jesus gave the disciples the authority to heal the sick, cleanse lepers, raise the dead, and cast out demons. The disciples went out and used the name of Jesus to cast out demons. They came back, excited about what they had seen, and ready to tell Jesus!
But Jesus wasn’t impressed. His message to them was simple: there is more. No matter what you’ve seen God do: there is more. No matter whom you’ve seen God heal: there is more. No matter what prayers you’ve seen answered: there is more! Jesus didn’t want His disciples to settle for what they had already seen. He wanted them to continue their pursuit of the miraculous their entire lives!
He wants the same for you. Have confidence in the authority Jesus has given you. Don’t settle for what you’ve seen. Pray for the impossible with boldness that God can do anything; because there is always more!
Father, thank You for always pushing the bounds of what I think is possible. Thank You for expanding the limits of my faith! Help me to believe for breakthrough with boldness, in Jesus’ name.
