Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Jams 4:7 KJV
Resisting the devil is futile until you submit yourself to God.
The power released by Christ’s victorious death, burial, and resurrection is only available to the born-again believer that submits himself to the Word of God (the Bible). Once, however, the child of God yields to the Lordship of the Savior the defeat of the devil is guaranteed.
An unsurpassing victory is the reward of loyal obedience. God is the Rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
