1 Peter 5:8–9
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith…


When I was a teenager, I was taught that if I wanted to resist the devil, I had to rebuke him. So whenever an evil thought came to my mind or I was tempted, I found myself saying, “I resist you, devil, in Jesus’ name! I bind you, devil! Go away from me, devil! I rebuke you in Jesus’ name!”
This went on until God showed me one day that though I had “resisted” the devil, I had spent more time talking to him than to God! I was more conscious of the devil than of God throughout the day.

I checked the Word of God and realized that we resist the devil not by focusing on resisting him, but by being established in the faith that we are made right with God through Jesus’ blood, that we are the righteousness of God in Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:21)

Yes, the devil will continue to remind you of your mistakes, failures and sins. And he will tell you that because of these things, you cannot receive your healing, that you will have to pay for your mistakes or that something bad will happen to your family. He will accuse you, condemn you and try to persuade your heart to believe that he can do bad things to you.

But the truth is that the devil cannot enforce anything in your life if he cannot persuade your heart. And your heart cannot be persuaded if it is “steadfast in the faith”, if it is established in righteousness. God says that once you are established in righteousness, “You shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you”. (Isaiah 54:14)

So now that my heart is established in righteousness, I can boldly declare, “Yes, I may have these problems in my life, but I am not guilty in God’s eyes. I am justified in God’s eyes by faith because of what Christ has done. I am righteous by Jesus’ blood!” My friend, that is how you resist the devil and become undevourable!

Thought For The Day

We resist the devil not by focusing on resisting him, but by being established in the faith that we are the righteousness of God in Christ.

I have no problem with Joseph Prince. However, don't be carried away.

Hebrews 3:13 (KJV) But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

You could easily have your heart hardened and think there's no consequence of iniquity.
It's a lie!!!.

You will not live in condemnation but as Christians flee from every appearance of evil. The devil wants you to offend God and not feel any guilt hence no repentance.

Be wise. The devil is smarter than you think

The consequence for iniquity is that u will live a short changed and frustrated life here, instead of enjoying d benefits of salvation.

No true believer commits sin and is happy. As long as those acts make u unhappy, it shows that u still have a good conscience before God.

All u need to keep doing as a believer is to keep God's word before u, and be conscious of what Jesus is to u. The Holy Spirit will do d rest, that's why He's here.
