Manna for the Day

ℳαηηα ḟøґ тℌℯ Ðα¥ :

"Submit to God. Resist the Devil." (Jam 4:7, NKJV).

Whenever we move an inch towards God, Satan can bring his temptations immediately to pull us away from God. In fact, the Bible clearly reveals that God is not the one who tempt us, because He never wants any one to become involved in evil of sin which separates humans from Him and his wonderful love and friendship towards them. Temptation is the pull of man's own evil thoughts and wishes from his fallen nature. These evil thoughts lead to evil actions and afterwards to the death of separation from His tangible Presence and and also incurs the just penalty of curses from God instead of blessings. So don't be misled, dear brothers and sisters (Jam 1:13-16), we ought to resist the temptation which the devil brings, and in doing so we are resisting the very devils which tries to influence our lives.

Happy, blessed and to be envied is the man who doesn't give in and do wrong when he is tempted, for afterwards he will get as his reward the crown of life that God has promised those who love him. In other words, if we love God we will hate evil and therefore finally it is not our strength but rather Christ's strength working from within us that guards the lives of his faithful ones, delivering them from the power of the wicked (Psa 97:10).

So the bottom line is, when the devil roars that is when God does work within us to makes us voluntarily submit our will to God and from there makes the working Christ within to cause a raging devil to rage without any wage. Thus causing the raging devil to flee for another opportune time by the power of Christ. So internal submission within one's heart to God is a lifestyle that every child of God should inculcate in their lives and living. This is the secret path to a ever victorious Christian life. Devil can be properly resisted and victoriously overcome by making him to flee, only when we are in submission to the will of God which has been revealed through the Word of God in the Bible. So do not just hear the Word of God but rather do it by your submission to God in humility when you are convicted by it, so that the grace of God might lift you up to keep your head always held high for the Glory of God. Ill-reports, cruel speeches, threats, taunts and the like of Satan roar are a clear indication of God and His people working together gloriously to fulfill His purpose and God's greats destiny for their lives. Hallelujah!

PRAY WITH ME SAINTS: Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you and praise you for giving me your very own nature to overcome the sin nature within me that pulls me away from you. I surrender my life to you and hate evil to resist the devil who tempts me often with besetting sins, I choose to cover myself with the blood of Christ as I now confess to you any sins that has caused grief in your heart. Help me be a overcomer through faith for your Glory. Amen!

Much Blessings....
