Sometimes, the Devil thinks that when he attacks you as a child of God, you will just walk away and go into a quiet corner to start a pity party. Has the enemy attacked you recently - perhaps your marriage, your ministry, your home ... whatever! Or has he stolen anything from you, perhaps he has stolen your joy, your spouse, your kids, your job, your finances, or even your career.

I have news for him. There is no more Mr Niceguy or Miss Niceguy or Mrs Niceguy! It is time to take back what rightfully belongs to you. The Bible tells us in James 4:7 "Therefore, submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will run away from you" (International Standard Version ©2008).

How does one submit to God? Well the GOD'S WORD® Translation (©1995) puts it this way, "So place yourselves under God's authority. Resist the devil, and he will run away from you." To submit to God therefore is to be fully, totally and completely yielded to God in every area of your life. It is to be willing and obedient. It is to accept the Lordship of Jesus in every area of your life. It is to depend on God in everything, to acknowledge Him in all things and to be fully reliant on Him.

You need to be fully yielded and submitted to God. Be reminded to keep your focus on Jesus the author and completer of our faith. The devil is a defeated foe. He may prowl about like a lion, but be reminded that he is not a LION.

In Christ Jesus, you can trample Satan under your feet. As a born again child of God, you can CRUSH the Devil!!!
