Apostle Grace Lubega
James 4:7 (KJV); Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Our theme scripture gives us a pattern in divine warfare.
It is firstly submission to God and then resisting the devil.
You may resist the devil all your life and he will never flee simply because you have not mastered this pattern.
What then is submission to God?
This is the place of bending to the authority of God and His Word.
It is giving God and His Word the priority they deserve at all times, in all places and under all circumstances.
The result of such submission is that if you speak, it is not merely you speaking but God speaking.
When a man who is submitted to God rebukes illness, it is not him rebuking the illness but the God in him rebuking the illness.
When such a man casts out demons, it is not merely him casting out demons but God in him casting out demons.
The result of this is that circumstances do not hear that man speaking; they hear the voice of God.
Difficulties do not hear that man speaking, they hear the voice of God.
Submission to God makes you the voice of God to demons, storms and any form of attack of the enemy. That is why the devil flees. Hallelujah!

PRAYER: My loving Father, I give You praise for this great day. I thank You because I am an instructed spirit. My life is ordered and patterned to the truth in Your Word. The devil has no part nor lot in what I do. I am submitted under You Lord, my life is a constant song of victory because I have understood this pattern. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
