In fact, he'll just step up the battle! These verses contain ten separate instructions for Christians. In the original Greek text, these were worded as imperatives, calling for immediate action, to root out the underlying sin of pride.
To have victory, so that the devil will flee from us, we have to do just as these verses say. We have to first submit ourselves to God.
Only then we are in a position to resist the devil. If we do not first submit ourselves to God, we are going to fail in our attempts to resist the devil. Then, after we have resisted the devil, we need to be sure we draw nigh to God, so that we do not become The Devil Sent You To Lorado - Unknown Artist - Super Hit Power up in self pride, as if we had resisted him in our own poor power. We must understand fully and without a doubt, just exactly where our power comes from.
When we draw near to God, the Bible promises that He will draw near to us. Then we are told to wash our hands and purify our hearts. Psalm 24 tells us that it is those with clean hands and pure hearts that can enter the sanctuary of the Lord, and will receive blessings and righteousness from the Lord: Who shall ascend Cryin Shame - Stray Cats - Gonna Ball the hill of the LORD? He that has clean hands, and a pure heart; who has not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
Psalm James then said we are to grieve, mourn, The Devil Sent You To Lorado - Unknown Artist - Super Hit Power wail, turning our laughter to mourning and our joy to gloom. In other words, we are to repent: to be sincerely sorry for our sinful thoughts, attitudes, The Devil Sent You To Lorado - Unknown Artist - Super Hit Power actions.
We cannot hide iniquity in our hearts and expect to have victory in our lives. We must see our sin as God sees it: prideful rebellion against His holy authority. Then, when we agree with God about our sin, we can easily humble ourselves before Him. And He promises that when we do so, He will lift us up. We keep the devil in his place by humbling ourselves under the mighty hand of the Almighty God. When we get out of our place under God's hand, Satan can get out of his place under our feet.
Obedience is the key to victory. Have you ever noticed how so many of the problems we face on a day to day basis are the results of our disobedience? We give the devil a foothold by disobeying what we know God has told us. Why on earth don't we realize this Various - Matrix Vol. 2 Electronic-House Compilation, and just submit ourselves to God in humble obedience, as the Bible says?
Let's face it, if you are truly a Christian, if you truly love God, you are going to obey Him sooner or later, anyway. So don't be a Jonah obey God the first time and save yourself a lot of problems! We will never keep Satan under our feet if we do not obey what we know God has told us. God would never accept you or want you. You'd never make it.
Again, all lies. God is very clear that none of us need to become "good" in order to be accepted by God, nor to become sinless in order to maintain that relationship with God. Jesus said of Satan, "He was a murderer from the beginning When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. The contrast between the devil and God is stunning. Jesus said, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
Jesus says of those who believe in him, "If you abide in my word Instead of being deceived by Satan, there is an opportunity to know what God says is true about himself, about your life, about relationships.
While Satan would like you to be enslaved by his deception, God wants you to know what's true, to be free and experience real life.
In addition to being a liar and an accuser, Satan, through his lies, tempts people toward slavery and addictions. One more won't hurt you. No one will find out.

You still have free will, making whatever decision you'd like to make. However, in many situations you would also know what's true and be less likely to give in to Satan's lies, less likely to feel helpless, confused or fearful.
Further, God offers his help. We're told, "The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a Tunes For The Canary Bird 3 - René Clemencic & Hopkinson Smith - Repertoire Pour Les Jeunes Flutiste out so that you can endure.
Who is Satan? A tempter, slanderer, and liar. His intent is to keep people isolated from God, so they will listen only to Satan, joining in his rebellion and experiencing destruction. Nothing he says about God or your life is true. God desires a relationship with you and for you to experience his love. He created you not to live in darkness, confusion, but to know what's true. Jesus said, "I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.
