By: O. Samuel
The Lord in His own goodness and mercies has blessed us again with another day. Beloved, there is always one thing I know for sure and that is, so far as there is life, God is not done with us. There is still hope for tomorrow. Today we again continue with “how to resist the devil”. I believe we are growing gradually in the truth. May God help us all. Please let us read James 4:7 from the ASV Bible. “Be subject therefore unto God; but resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
Satan is neither omniscient nor omnipresent. He is however acquainted with many evil spirits-the sinful angels-they actually do his work for him. When we are idle, Satan easily puts something that is known to him, but not to us into our thought. As Christians, we must not be curious or nosy. If we are not, we will escape many satanic thoughts.
We must therefore resist all unclean thoughts in order to cause us not to sin. When an evil thought first comes to us, let us resist it by faith, believing it has fled away. But in case it comes the second time, we must know that it comes as a lie, not the truth. Therefore we must consider it as false and declare that we have already resisted it. But if we consider it as truth, we shall soon find it so attached to us that we can hardly throw it off. Do remember, if we resist the devil, he will flee from us. This is the word of the Lord and it is totally trustworthy.
May we gain a genuine and strong faith to always resist the devil’s thoughts in our lives. Amen.
Please share a word with the world.
