Dear Daughter of Almighty God
James 4:7 (ESV)
7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
We are to submit to God, submit means surrender, give in, yield, accept and agree to. When we submit we are surrendering to God, accepting Him and all that He is and agreeing with God. Submitting to God can be difficult for us because we think we will lose our freedom or our choices. Submitting to God only brings us peace, comfort and our needs meet because when we submit to God He then can be in our every situation bringing it round to His and our good.
Straight after submitting to God we have to “resist the devil and he will flee from you.” When we are submitted to God we can resist the devil and he will flee from us because we have the Word of God to chase him off with. To be able to fully submit to God we need to know what the Word of God says and if we know the Word of God we can do as Jesus did when the devil was tempting him, we can say “it is written.” Jesus sent the devil fleeing with the Word of God and that’s how we are to send the devil on his way is with the Word of God.
Jesus is our example.
