James 4:7 Daily Devotional
We have authority over the devil. Simply just resisting him will cause him to flee from us. It doesn’t take some sort of special prayer – it’s simply saying “no” to what he has for you and saying “yes” to what God has for you.
The application is in the first part of the verse. We can resist the devil by submitting ourselves to God. Do this by praying, spending daily time with God, and studying his Word.
Thank you, Jesus, for this power you’ve given me. I don’t need to fear anything when I humble myself before you. Help me to resist the devil and his schemes and pursue you with all I have. It’s in your name I pray, amen.
