7: Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
The devil is always on his job. He does not take a day off. He doesn’t take lunch breaks nor does he take vacation. As children of God, we must stay on alert. The devil comes to kill, steal and destroy. He will use whatever weapon, tactic or person to get us off track. Most of the time, he is going to use the closest persons to us.
Don’t allow your mind to get caught up in the devil’s attacks. Submit to God. Put on the whole armor of God when the attacks come. He says if we would keep our minds stayed on thee, He would keep us in perfect peace. Pray and seek God. Resist satan and his attacks on your mind and your lives. When we keep our eyes on the Messiah, the devil has to flee. Because we belong to God, we are more than conquerors!!
“Lord, help us to resist the temptations of the devil. Help us to keep our minds on you and to call upon You in our distress. Be our everything today and everyday. In the name of Jesus, Amen! “
