Resist The Devil and He Will Flee

Yesterday me and my Uncle had an interesting conversation about the devil fleeing. We know James 4:7 tells us “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” So why does it sometimes feel like minutes later he is right back at you, God’s Word doesn’t lie. What is happening here? He offered a perspective I had not considered. The devil sits from afar throwing his darts telling you he has never left, telling you that you have no authority to make him leave. He is the father of lies. Fire his darts right back and tell him the Lord stands in front of you as protection. You are a child of the most high God and with the authority of the blood of Jesus he has to and has fled. Stand firm on God’s Word and who you are in Christ. Once he’s fled from that battle don’t let him convince you he’s still there. “Submit yourselves therefore to God. RESIST the devil, and he WILL flee from you.” 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
