Don`t fight but Resist..
``Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you`` [ James 4:7 ]
Dear brothers and sisters, you don`t have to fight and defeat the devil today, Jesus Christ already had judged him and defeated him at the cross (Colossians 2:15) and said ``be of good cheer, I have overcome the world`` (John 16:33). He also said ``Now is the judgement of this world, now the ruler of this world will be cast out``(John 12:31). Jesus already got the victory for you and He has given that to you. That is why He said `` All that I have is yours``.(Luke 15:31)
What is your part today? You have to submit to Jesus Christ today. Submit means - yield to the power, victory or authority of another. You accept and dwell in the Power, victory and the authority of Jesus Christ and continually stand firm on the victory ground.
There is a huge difference between a fight and resist, If you are fighting for anything that means you haven`t got the victory yet, but resist meant that you already have got the victory, the enemy has been totally defeated and he hasn`t got any authority or power over you. But he is a fool even though he has been defeated, disarmed and triumphed, he refuses to give up, sneaking around with many cunning plans and devices to deceive you, that`s why the Bible says `` Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8).``
When the devil speaks to you through your mind by saying, ``Look at your bank account or your job how are you going to solve your money problems? You are not rich, you don`t have any resources and you don`t have any rich friends to help you.`` Then you resist him by the promises of God saying through your mind, ``I am not trying to get victory, but I am a victor In Jesus Christ, I am already full, I am ruling and reigning as kings (I Corinthians 4:8, I am more than conquerors (Roman 8:37)``
It is not at all a matter how many friends you have got, how much influence that you have got or how much money that you have got. You must know that you are rich because for your sake Jesus Christ became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich (2 Corinthians 8:9). If your needs are going higher and higher, remember your supply also goes higher and higher to supply you, because tomorrow will worry itself to supply all that you need (Matthew 6:34).
The same thing will happen to your body. The devil will try to convince you with symptoms in your body. He will try to put false pain in your body so that you will have more pain killers and therapies, and that will make you feel weak here and there, so that you will think that you are still weak and sick.
He is trying to make you to believe that you don`t have your healing. because devil know that what ever he believes has not got any power so that it will never come to pass but what ever you believe it has got the power and will come to pass. that is why he has to change your believe system into false believes so that you will fall and fail yourself.
Whole world has been corrupted by devil by false believes, and that false believes bring darkness and shadow of death in your life. That is why Jesus said, ``you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32).`` Jesus came to change our false belief system into the right one. so that we can have abundant life. That is why we have to renew our mind by the right word of God so that you will have new and victory life in Jesus Christ. Amen
