Resist The Devil

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭5:8‬ ‭

“BE ANGRY, AND yet DO NOT SIN; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not give the devil an opportunity.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭4:26-27‬

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

  1. Thanks, Crissy! The evil one definitely gains a foothold when we allow our emotions to override our spiritual reason. A personal twist: People comment that I’m a very “laid-back” person, but I would say I’m very reserved and sometimes have difficulty processing/expressing my emotions. I’ll hold in my anger until I “pop” like a volcano. Not a pretty sight. Doing better with the Lord’s help.

    1. Oh yes! Couldn’t agree more Tom.
      Like the Israelites, I had to walk around the dessert in a circle until I learned the lesson of submitting to God and then on to the next lesson .
      The work of santificación by the Holy Spirit is powerful and painful and at times a lonely journey
      Oh! but what a victory when we overcome and win that battle .
