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





Book: James (New Testament)
Author: James

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.
