“Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7 NKJV)
How many times have you quoted the verse, “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you”? But we cannot resist the devil if we don’t submit to God first. When we find ourselves in difficult situations, we must look first at ourselves in difficult situations, we must look first at ourselves and ask, “Have I submitted to God in this area of my life, this situation, or this circumstance?” Once we have truly submitted to God, we then have the power to resist the devil. Resist the devil and watch him run!
Sometimes when we are caught in the middle of a difficult situation, our worldly instincts tell us that we must rely on worldly instincts tell us that we must rely on worldly understanding and worldly solutions. We try to analyze the problem, instead of immediately turning it over to God.
Always check your circumstances. Do it in this order: submit to God, resist the devil, and watch him flee.
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank You today that we are not ignorant of the devil’s devices. We see him for who he is and what he is doing. We submit ourselves to You for this day in every circumstance. And we resist the devil with God’s power that is within us.
In Jesus’s Name,
