James 4:7 (KJV)
7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
I saw the following quote the other day; really think about this as you read it…then see how the above verse fits.
“When we care more about what FEELS right than what IS right, we open ourselves up to the destruction of sin!” -Lysa Terkeurst
Wow! This is so true! Yet, that is the way of the world now days. There’s even a saying-“If it feels good…do it!” Then there’s the old song that says…”If it’s your thang…do what you wanna do….” No wonder this world is going to hell in a hand basket!
We must SUBMIT ourselves to God…let Him lead us into what is right, what is good, what is true, what is Holy! Then and only then will we be able to resist the devil!
Let’s submit ourselves to God today. Let’s resist the devil…then watch him run!
