What does it mean to submit to God? It means obeying His word and denying self. However, we can only submit ourselves to God, when we are first humble and recognize our need for Him.
Resist the devil and he will flee from you. This is possible only when we submit to God. The sinful nature in us finds it difficult to live in line with God’s word. Do not be discouraged when you fail or fall, rather rely on the LORD to help you overcome through the power of His Spirit.
Prayer: Dear God, I know that I cannot resist the devil without your power, help me to overcome him, in Jesus’ name, amen.
