Submit to God; Resist the Devil

www.bible.com/1713/jas.4.7.csb

Two basic instructions that will help you throughout your whole life. Submit to God and resist the devil. That’s all there is to it. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, if it was easy, everyone would do it. The world follows a different mantra: submit to the devil and resist God.

Did you know that every time you sin you become a child of the devil? Every time temptation sucks you in, your father is the prince of darkness. You keep sinning you become his slave, because he has no love for you. All he wants is to spite God. He is so angry at God and so petty that he will send temptation to rob God of you. For we all belong to God in the beginning. But as soon as we commit that first sin, that first willful act against His authority, suddenly we switch sides.

I want to counsel you today to read that verse above. If you are in the devil’s thrall, there is a way out. His name is Jesus. He paid for your sins with His own blood, to ransom you out of the devil’s hands. Resist the devil in the name of Jesus, and He will flew from you.

God bless you today.
