Don’t Let The Devil Intimidate You With His Roar
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7 (KJV)
There are many believers that are passive and it ought not to be so. Don’t sit down and keep complaining. Quit saying whatever will be will be. There are things you can stand up and change because you have the word of God. If I am not called to be passive, what should I do? Resist the devil. I hear some people go to the extent of propounding the theory that fasting is no longer needed. That is a lie from the pit of hell. Jesus did not say, “If you fast”, in Matthew 6; rather, He said, “When you fast”. This shows that Jesus expects us to fast.
Matthew 11:12 (KJV) tells us “the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” If you know what God has made available for you in heavenly places, let the devil know that you are not backing down until you get it. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Don’t you know that the devil wants to wear you out? He wants to deprive you of what is already yours so you have to resist him. Don’t let him intimidate you with his roar.
Every promise of God is sealed with the blood. It is a covenant. Therefore, what God has spoken concerning you will come to pass. In Luke 18:1-8, Jesus told a parable to illustrate how believers ought to stand their ground. Even when a thing is yours, the devil will never put things in your hands. So here was this widow being resisted but she stood her ground and got her victory. Hear the unjust judge in Luke 18:4-8 (KJV), “Though I fear not God, nor regard man; Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”
Faith means standing your ground. When you do, you will see God come through for you.
The Parable of the Persistent Widow
18 Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.
2 He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought.
3 And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’
4 “For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think,
5 yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’”
6 And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says.
7 And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off?
8 I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
1 Peter 5:5-10
5 In the same way, you who are younger, submit yourselves to your elders. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because,
“God opposes the proud
but shows favor to the humble.”[a]
6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
