“Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.” John 17:17
“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” James 4:7, NIV.
There are times when thoughts of fear, doubt, and unbelief come to attack my mind. Then God will say to me, “You are who I said you are. You have what I said you have, and you will do what I purposed you to do by my grace and power. Everything I said about you is true, and everything the devil said about you is a lie.”
Then I receive those words and speak them from my mouth. Immediately all those thoughts of fear, doubt, and unbelief pointed at me like a hundred bullets, become still and fall to the ground. Then I experience the peace of God and feel His ministering angels strengthening my heart.
When Jesus was tempted of the devil in the wilderness, He spoke the written word and said what His Father said, and the devil left him. Then angels came and ministered strength to Him (see Matthew 4:1-12). We can experience the same, but we will have to follow the example of Jesus. My sister, God has the only real solution for your real-life problems, temptations and struggles. He says to submit to Him, resist the devil, and he will flee from you. That’s a guarantee from your Father in heaven.
1. Submit to God by hearing, reading and receiving God’s word about your situation.
2. Resist the devil by speaking the truth of God’s word out loud from your mouth.
3. Watch the devil flee and cease his attack on your mind and body.
You will have to do things God’s way to see God’s results.
Prayer: Father God, I submit to you by receiving your instructions and saying what you have said about me. The devil is a liar, and I resist him and all of his lies. He flees from me now. Because I have applied your word in my life, I will enjoy your peace, and thank you that you will cause your ministering angels to strengthen me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
