The Resistance

Beth Jones

"Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you." James 4:7, NKJV

Has the devil been bothering you? Resist him! Put him on the run. Make him flee! When the enemy comes knocking on your door—resist him. When he tries to throw thoughts of fear, discouragement, anger, temptation or other things your way—resist him.

The devil is persistent. He usually starts his efforts with a thought—called a "fiery dart." He watches to see what we will do. If we give him any attention, he continues to throw thoughts our way with the hopes that he can penetrate our shield of faith—and ultimately steal, kill and destroy areas of our lives.

For example, a thought like this may come to you: "God isn't real; why do you even believe in Him?" If we listen to these words and mull over this thought—rather than resist—the devil will gain the upper hand and those thoughts will turn to imaginations, arguments, reasonings and, ultimately, strongholds that hinder us.

So, what do we do? One of the best ways to resist the devil is with silence. Don't even acknowledge the thoughts he throws your way. Don't even give them a voice. Don't say what he says. Instead, say what God says. When the enemy throws a thought your way—just quote the Word of God on the topic. 

For example, if the thought about God's existence comes to you, rather than even acknowledge that thought—you simply say, "Whoever comes to God must believe He exists and He is the rewarder of them who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). God's eternal qualities are revealed to me through His creation (Romans 1:20). Though I have not seen Him, I love Him and I am filled with inexpressible joy (1 Peter 1:8)!" 

When we do these things, we have effectively submitted to God, quenched the fiery darts of the enemy and resisted the devil! And, he will flee from you!

Say This: "Father, I submit to You and Your Word. I will resist the devil every time he throws a thought or a fiery dart my way. I know that when I resist him with Your Word, he must flee! In Jesus' Name. Amen."
