Submissive Resistance

James 4:7Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. (NIV 1978)

My Musings – The key to avoid falling into sin: resist the devil. The key to resisting the devil: submitting to God.

My Advice – Satan does not like opposition. If you sincerely resist him, he will leave you alone, at least for the time being. He may try again, but the more you resist, the greater your ability to resist when he next returns.
