Can you resist the devil

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Verses & Quotes

Are there times in your life when you find yourself doing things you know you shouldn’t do? This can be something as simple as foods you know you shouldn’t have or it can be a little more complex like calling in sick when you want to play for the day.

James 4:7 says, “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

This means when you have God on your side you’ll make the right decisions. You’ll be able to resist the things you shouldn’t do. When you continue to do the right thing, those evil thoughts will flee from you and you won’t have those feelings.

Remember James 4:7 when you’re having a hard time submitting yourself to God. He’s there for you and he’ll guide you through the temptations.

Are you being tested?

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. James 1:2-4 (KJV)

Trouble can come in many forms. It can be a loss of a job or an illness. Most times we pray to God when these types of things test our faith. We need to pray every day for continually income and healthy lives. We need to pray this for all of our friends and family because we can be effected by their trouble as well.

It’s ok that you haven’t done this in the past because you’ve been forgiven. The time to start is now. Don’t wait until your faith is tested. Don’t be embarrassed or feel like you don’t know how to do this. God will lead the way and he will show you what to do and how to do it. So start your day with prayer and you will feel joy and happiness every day.

Do you let others get to you?

The economy appears to be in a bit of a slump right now and that can cause people to be down and discouraged. When this happens, people are grumpy and take it out on others or they want you to feel the same as they do. We can’t do that because it’s not God’s desire for us. We need to chose to be cheerful and full of joy each and every day. No matter what happens or what doesn’t happen.
Here is a Bible verse for you to remember when you go out into the world and deal with people.
“Set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth”.  (Colossians 3:2, AMP)
