How to overcome the devil?
Every problem you have, every injustice you go through, comes from the devil.
But it is written
Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. James 4:7
If you do not resist, the devil will never flee from you. You have to resist the devil with all your power and with all your might.
You need to resist the devil through the Word of God. Unless you use the word of God, you will never be able to overcome the devil. How can you overcome bad thoughts? How can you overcome bad feelings? How can you overcome sin? Only through the Word of God!
The Lord Jesus in the desert overcame the devil using the word. Three times the devil came and three times the Lord Jesus used the word. He said “It is written”. Whenever you have bad thoughts, you have to use the Word of God and overcome satan by God’s words. If you are under temptation, use the Word of God to overcome the devil. When we say for you to read the Bible, it is not for you to become religious. But when you read the Bible, you are preparing yourself for battle against evil. Bad thoughts will come, doubts will come, thoughts of backsliding, thoughts of giving up, thoughts of going back and doing the same things from your past, all of these thoughts will come. However, when you read the Bible, you equip yourself.
When satan came to tempt Jesus:
Jesus answered him, saying, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.’ Luke 4:4
May the God of the Bible bless all of you!
