resist and he will flee.

::submit yourselves, then, to God. resist the devil, and he will flee from you.::
james 4:7

that is a promise.
that is a promise.
that is a promise from God!

and that means it is true.

but good grief... i need help believing that promise and walkin' it out. why do i approach life thinking i'm going to fly through it without hindrance? i find it so hard to submit to God before i submit to trying to control situations myself.

Jesus, bind my heart to You, for i know that it is there alone where i find freedom and life. help me resist the schemes of this world that are so alluring. You are good.
