Today's Daily Devotional

Come near to God and He will come near to you. James 4:8

06/10/09 This is a beautiful verse of scripture. And the one before it is a powerhouse! James 4:7 says, “Submit yourselves therefore to the Lord. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” I get so excited when I read this verse! You don’t need a grand and elaborate battle plan to get rid of the devil. You only need to resist him. I know from experience that it is easier said than done. But I can also tell you that, once you resist, it gets easier to do. I will also confess that once you are actively resisting temptation in one area of your life, it seems that the pull toward sin in other areas seems stronger. I still struggle in several areas. But I have begun the battle in those areas because I recognize them as weaknesses. I am more aware and becoming more prayerful in those areas. I hope this helps you.
