Day 5: Standing Firm in the Evil Day

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

James 4:7  (KJV)

Reflection: Submitting to God is the first step in resisting the devil. It means humbling ourselves before the Lord, acknowledging His authority, and committing to follow His guidance. When we do this, we find the strength to resist the devil, and as God’s word promises, he will flee from us.

Illustration: Think about a small child trying to lift a heavy weight. It’s impossible. But when their father steps in to help, the weight becomes bearable. Our Father in heaven gives us the strength to resist the devil when we submit to Him.

Prayer: Lord, I submit to Your authority and guidance. Help me to stand firm against the enemy, trusting that with Your strength, he will flee. Amen.
