James 4:7 (KJV) Submit yourselves therefore to God, Resist the devil, and he will flee from you
When Mr. Devin was still living in the world, he lived his normal life in darkness without any restraint. It was habitual for him to sin and his conscience would not condemn him. People in his environment did not care if he was violating divine principles because he was simply living his life as a candidate for hell. When he gave his life to Jesus Christ, a lot changed about him. Every step he took meant something because his neighbors and colleagues now knew that he was born again. He denounced everything that gave him sinful pleasure in the past (2 Cor 5:17). And you know what? that was where the battle began.
As a Christian, after the new birth, the real battle which requires conscious efforts from you in representing the Kingdom of God is started. One major objective of the devil in this battle is to corrupt your light (which you have become) and give a bad image to the body of Christ.
As a Christian, Mr. Devin had to submit to God. He had to submit to Light and let it shine; pushing the darkness away from his environment.
A believer in Christ must overthrow governments in the spiritual realm to take charge of his Life and environment out of the manipulation of darkness. He must cancel covenants and occupy the new ground God has given him. That is why the devil would seek to stop him.
Immediately he gives his life to Jesus Christ, the battle line against his soul (and Divine mission) is drawn. The devil knows that as a carrier of light, a believer is a potential threat to his kingdom, so he engages him in a fight. And the only way to have sure and constant victory is by submitting to God and resisting the Devil- don’t give him any room. Victory is sure in Christ Jesus.
Friends of Jesus, I challenge you today, fight the good fight of faith (1 Tim 6:12). Finish the course, for Christ Jesus has overcome the world (John 16:33).
Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me submit to you daily and resist the devil. Deliver me from the traps of the devil and help me walk as light in my generation. Amen.
