7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
This is NOT the Macarena or the Hokey Pokey!
Step 1 – Submit yourselves therefore to God
This is NO SONG AND DANCE. You can sing emotional hymns. You can sing Spiritual hymns. You can dance before God and put your right leg in and shake it all about. Without complete submission to God, the Devil has an open door to pester you day and night. Submit everything you are to God. Make yourself a living sacrifice.
Step 2 – Resist the Devil
Eph 6:11-12 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
When you are afraid or sad, open the Bible and read. Read it aloud. By Reading God’s Word when you feel depressed or fearful, you can increase your Spiritual stamina. If you are experiencing any thoughts or feelings that you fear are from the evil one, read or quote scripture and the evil will flee. Evil will not stand in the Light of God. When we resist evil using the sword of the Spirit (Eph 6:17), it will leave us alone.
Submit to God and Put on His Armor. Onward Christian Soldier.
