“Obey God, resist the devil and he will flee.” James 4:7. The statutes and command of God are simple. It is when we operate outside of the them, believing that our way is better than God’s way, that we give the adversary legal right to enter into our lives through idolatry and the open doors it allows in our lives. We were not created to ever live under any other authority other than God. It is through God only that we truly experience victory over the adversary.
Satan couldn’t beat Jesus, so he shouldn’t be beating you. So why then are you not walking in victory? It is because you have been deceived into believing that you do not have to totally submit to God and His ways and we put our trust in worldly systems and our ability to fix it. We become prideful not fully understanding that our pride causes us to resist God. And we continually fall to the wiles of the devil.
In order to live a victorious life we have to live strategically. We must develop a strategy for every area of our lives if we are to live as “more than conquerors…” but conquering only happens through total submission to God. It is through submitting to God that He releases supernatural manifestations and the anointing for victory in our lives. Christ lived submitted to God and anywhere in our lives we are following the patterns of Jesus, WE WIN!
