James 4:7 & 8 (KJV),
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.”
Be wise about the ways of the enemy so you can rebuke him.
Yes, be wise like a serpent but also know you can be gentle like a dove.
The enemy (aka the devil, old sluefoot, the deceiver, satan) comes to steal, kill, and to destroy.
The enemy will always speak lies for he is the father of lies.
Taunting words come from the enemy.
The enemy will remind you of your past to try to make you feel as though you are trash.
Remember that God doesn’t make trash.
God made you. God makes all things good.
Resist the words of the enemy.
Those who draw near to God know that they can resist the enemy and the evil one will flee.
If any person treats you the way the devil treats people run away from that person. RESIST them like the plague.
God wants you to enjoy a happy life. Happiness is found in the Lord.
