I READ: James 4
The first words in James 4:7 are “submit to God”. In this phrase, the words fear and obey are implied. After someone submits to God, that’s when he/she can defeat the devil and devil will run away from that individual. So obedience is very important in order to defeat the devil. Many children of God become the victim of the devil because they do not fear and do not obey the Lord. To be obedient to the Lord means to go through life according to the Word of God. Don’t pick and choose parts of the Bible to follow and to violate. The type of obedience that is pleasing to the Lord is total obedience. If we completely obey to the Lord and His Word, without us rebuking the devil, He would have ran away from our lives already.
I DECLARE: James 4:7 – Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
I DO: What actions am I going to take after meditating on the Word of God?
I PRAY: Pray as guided by the Holy Spirit
