What is written by God is settled, established and never to be moved now and forever. Therefore, stand on what is written by God. It secures you in God’s will. In Luke 4:4 the Bible says “And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written…”(KJV).
In this experience Jesus overcame temptation and the devil had to leave after two more encounters. In Luke 4:13 the Bible says, “And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season”(KJV).The enemy ended up not bothering Jesus for a period of time. This is what happens in your life when you overcome. The enemy flees.
It is written in James 4:7 “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you”(KJV). The devil flees from those who resist him by using the written word of God.
First, believe the written word of God because that is what submission to God entails. Second, speak what is written because that is the active way of resisting whatever is contrary to God’s will.
Submit to God and resist the devil by what is written. This leads and will lead to victory in the battles of life you face.
