Resist the devil // 25-07-22

“As the scripture says, “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” So then, submit to God. Resist the Devil, and he will run away from you. Come near to God, and he will come near to you.” James‬ ‭4:6-7‬ ‭GNBUK‬‬

I’ve been thinking about what it means to be part of the resistance when it comes to the spiritual battle we are in? How not to fall for the deception and seduction of the enemy, and it all comes down to humility. When I recognise that I am not God, and I don’t know it all, and I choose to come under Christ’s authority, and be obedient to His commands, when I determine to stay as close as I can to my King, so that I can hear His voice and follow His direction, only then do I have the power to resist the devil, and believe me, when He sees Jesus over you and in you, he won’t hang around, he will have to flee! ‘How can we fail to get excited, the battle is ours why don’t we fight it, battalions of darkness rise above me, but God put a fighter in me!’ The spiritual battle doesn’t have to be exhausting, it can be exhilarating as we get passionate about Jesus and the things of His Kingdom – Let’s go! 🙌🏼❤️‍🔥
