Therefore, submit yourselves to God.
Resist the devil, and he will run away from you.
Have you been having a tough week? Have there been tough decisions you needed to make? How does one know which road God wants you to take? How does one know where Jesus is planning you to be?
As humans, we try to take control of our situation. Its a struggle to let go and surrender everything to God. There is always that fear of the unknown. The bible says that the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy – and he will feed our minds and hearts with doubts and anxiousness.
James teaches and reminds us that every inch of our lives must be submitted unto God and must be given up to Him so he can be in control. We are also command to resist the devil and the devil himself will run away from us. This reminds us that Jesus has overcome the sins that have been keeping us at bay and that we should no longer live our lives as if we were of not in Christ.
God promises that in every temptation, He will provide a way out. Even in times when you feel like you’re in a hole in the ground and can’t find the way out, God is stretching out His hand to you, calling you to repent from all the darkness and sin in your life and take hold of His hand. He will pull you out and will see you through.
