顺服上帝,抵挡魔鬼 [Submit to Lord, Resist the Devil]

书卷:雅各书(新约)
作者:雅各

雅各书4章7节:“故此,你们要顺服上帝。务要抵挡魔鬼,魔鬼就必离开你们逃跑了。”

今日默想:顺服是向上帝说“是”,抵挡魔鬼是向魔鬼说“不”。顺服上帝是抵挡魔鬼的先决条件,不顺服上帝的人决不能抵挡魔鬼。魔鬼是信徒最大的仇敌,是绝对不能妥协的。务要认识他的各种诡计,切勿上他的当。对付上帝仇敌魔鬼最佳策略,乃是向上帝谦卑,顺服祂的旨意。我们单凭自己不能与魔鬼对抗,必须援引上帝的恩典和能力。信徒对于魔鬼的试探,不可自告奋勇的与他周旋抗衡,而应当躲避,求主不让我们遇见。但对于魔鬼,我们则要抵挡他,而不是逃避。魔鬼所以会逃跑,并不是因为惧怕我们,而是因为惧怕上帝。当我们肯顺服上帝时,祂就作了我们抵挡的力量。魔鬼虽能欺负我们,但却不能伤害我们。魔鬼虽或暂时获胜,但他最终仍将归于失败。

James 4:7 :“Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”

Today’s Meditation: Submitting ourselves to God is to say ‘yes’ to Him, while resisting devil means to say ‘no’ to him. Submitting ourselves to God is the prerequisite condition to resist devil. One who does not submit himself to God cannot resist devil. Devil is the greatest enemy of a disciple and he cannot be compromised. We need to know his tricks and avoid them. The best way to resist devil is by being humble to the Lord and be obedient to His will. We cannot fight devil with our own strength. We need to grace and power from Lord. We cannot match ourselves against the trials of devil. We need to avoid and pray to Lord that we will not meet them. We need to resist devil but not running away from him. Devil’s escape is due to the fear towards Lord but not ours. As we obey the Lord, He will become our power to resist devil. Devil can bully us, but he cannot harm us. Devil may earn his victories for now, but he will fall eventually.
