Bible Verse about Resisting the Devil

James 4:7

“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”


Satan is very furious nowadays in creating adversity, hardship, tribulations among people, to turn them away from God. Satan attacks on God’s people are many and of various types. Jesus also faced temptations by Satan. The tempter came to Him and said, “If you are the son of God, change the stones to bread; if you are the son of God jump down;” Satan put the same words on some people who watched Him on the cross and they said, “if you are the son of God come down from the Cross”.

The evil one challenges every child of God about his/her child-ship with God. He will put questions in you like, how can a sinner like you be the child of God? If you are the child of God, how can these things happen to you? Such questions will bombard you every day and night.

To overcome the power of Satan, you must constantly remember that you are the child of God and He is your Father. Recall everyday that you have the right to be the child of God because you believe in Him and you have accepted Him in your life. Under any circumstances, God will never let go of His children. He will forever be at your side.

So be strong and stand firm in the truth of His mighty words. He will lead you through any tough battles of the evil and you will conquer and flee the devil in the Name of the Lord.
