The Key

The Key

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. (James 4:7-10 NIV)

What is the key to resisting the devil?  Surrendering our will to God.  He will give us the ability to resist the devil and his temptations.  The closer you come to God the nearer He is to you.  The stronger your relationship becomes the more difficult it is for you to fall into temptation.  Confess your sins and God will purify your hearts.  We can’t walk around with one foot in the world and in the church.  We can’t love evil and God at the same time.  Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
