Episode 154


19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.

Luke 10:19


I don’t know about you, but I am ready to declare the wonders of 2021. I know a lot of people are hesitant to do that. I saw a tik Tok circulating; that was pretty funny. It said everyone is going to enter 2021, no screaming, sitting nicely and politely, don’t touch anything, we don’t want to mess this one up.


Yeah, I get it; we know 2020 was a crazy year. But doesn’t this verse get you excited for what’s to come? He has given us the authority to sample snakes and scorpions. I don’t care if 2020 was a bad year for you; you’ve been given the authority to trample on any snake in your life. Nothing will harm you.


That doesn’t mean we won’t have hardships, there is a clear distinction between the two, and you can find that context over and over again. There will be troubling days. You will have hard seasons, and maybe this past year was a hard season for you, but don’t you worry, nothing will harm you.


All I know is that we are ready for all that 2021 will bring. We can talk courageously into this new year, declaring the miracles we want to see in our lives. This is the year I get my health back; this is the year I walk into homeownership; this is the year I become debt-free; this is the year! My friend, this is your year. It can be your year.


With all the faith you have, make your list and get alone with God and prepare for the best year in His name. Walk-in authority is given to you, and don’t give in to temptation. You can trample on those snakes.



Jesus, we are ready for 2021. Keep us safe tonight as we continue to pray for those affected by the virus. With all of these Holidays back to back, it’s very important we continued to practice safety measures to ensure a prosperous year for our family and loved us. So bless us tonight. Jesus, we also ask that you remind us to walk in your Authority. Remind us to turn away from temptation and to walk boldly into what can be our best year, a year we will never forget filled with blessings and accomplishments. We ask that you help us write out the goals that mimic a life after your own heart. We ask that you help prepare us for all that you have for us. It is in your Holy name that we pray, AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!


We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
