1 John 3:7-8 My dear children, don’t let anyone divert you from the truth. It’s the person who acts right who is right, just as we see it lived out in our righteous Messiah. Those who make a practice of sin are straight from the Devil, the pioneer in the practice of sin. The Son of God entered the scene to abolish the Devil’s ways.
Ephesians 4:27 says “Don’t give the devil a way to defeat you.” A strong command to shut the devil out. The verse above tells us that God sent Jesus to ‘abolish the devil’s ways.’ Our commitment to His Lordship enables us to trust Him so that the devil is robbed of his authority over us. Jesus is stronger than the devil and sin and satan must bow to Him.
Entrust yourself to Christ. Count on Him to release you from, and keep you from the clutches of the evil one. He must be dominant in our lives as we seek to allow Him to prevail within us and force His presence to keep us on the right track.
