-James 4:7 (NASB)
Even though we may not immediately give up control, it usually becomes obvious at some point that we can't win on our own. James (4:7) reminds us that we need to submit to God. When we submit to God and turn everything over to Him, then we can resist the devil and the devil will flee from us. Through it all, this victory can only be ours when we are willing to submit to God!
Resist the devil and his ways by submitting your life (all of it!) to God!
Thank You for being willing to take over and help me resist the ways of the devil. Help me to recognize him and be strong enough to resist his temptations. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
