How To Resist The Devil?
“Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” James 4:7
We know that the devil is the greatest troublemaker for all mankind especially the believers. But then HOW TO RESIST THE DEVIL???
The answer is in the same verse itself, “SUBMIT TO GOD!”
Only when you submit to GOD, you will be able to RESIST THE DEVIL.
You may ask, “How to submit to GOD?” To submit to God it is not hard as many thinks. It is very easy if you understand, obey, give priority to the two great commandments of Jesus Christ:…..
“You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27
If you love God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind, there won’t be a space for the devil in the form of idol.
And when you love your neighbor (people around you) as you would love yourself, you will do no harm to others.
Therefore when you submit yourself to God and obey these two commandments, you’ve resisted the devil and he would flee from you for you gave him no space to him to do evil.
