Word for Today:
Resisting the devil is a daily Assignment.
Ministry of the Word : True Spirituality
Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7).
Resisting the devil requires spiritual strength. You need the Holy Spirit to successfully resist the devil daily. According to our memory verse, the first thing is to submit yourself to God. You have to learn to stand on the authority of the word of God in every situation you find yourself.
Many Christians accept gifts from the devil and side with him very readily, instead of resisting him. At the appearance of the slightest headache or discomfort, they are already confessing. With spiritual awareness, you learn to rely on the power in the word of God and resist everything contrary to the nature of God around you. Remember , God calls those things that be NOT as if they were (Romans 4:17). When there was darkness in the beginning, God did not focus on the darkness. God ignored the darkness and spoke light out of the darkness ( Genesis 1:3).
Everything else may fail, but the word of God can never fail. The word of God cannot lie. The word of God cannot deny Himself. Do not focus on things that will not glorify God in Christ.
Due to ignorance, many Christians actually spread information that glorify the devil rather than God in the name of evangelism and Christianity.
Beloved , have faith in God. We have been given so much power in Christ Jesus to help us resist the devil:
“Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 18:18).
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
Dear Father, please give us the grace to draw near to you and to resist the devil in every situation in the mighty name of Jesus . Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
