Dealing with the onslaught of the devil

Daily Thought

Your Word for 17 May 2024

John 15:4
‘Remain in Me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in Me.’

Overcome! Don't give the devil a foothold
It is important to know how we can deal with the onslaught of the devil. As we take the tools in our hands we can begin to wage a fight and it is a good fight, because it is a fight that we can win.
The first weapon we have is our ability to resist.
We must resist the devils attempts to gain access and a foothold in our lives.

1 Peter 5:9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith. (NIV)

When we resist there is a promise that God will fulfill.

James 4:7 So give yourselves humbly to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
