Apostle Grace Lubega
James 4:7 (KJV), Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
The order of the Spirit dictates that you cannot resist the devil unless you submit to God.
Before “binding” demons of sickness, poverty, regression or struggle, first submit to God.
How do you submit to God? By applying yourself to the word as instructed. For example, Ephesians 4:27 says, “Do not give place to the devil.”
The Greek Word “topos” used for “place” is translated to mean, “opportunity, power, occasion for acting.”
It’s submission to God to obey that instruction.
Make up your mind to take God at His word regardless of what happens in your life.
Flood your spirit and mind with the Word.Think it, speak it and act it that your reflexive response to any situation is by the Word. Hallelujah!
FURTHER STUDY: Hebrews 3:14, Hebrews 10:39
A man who submits to God never gives the devil an opportunity, power or occasion to act.
PRAYER: Father, my spirit is submitted to you. I am faithful to the Word and its dictates. I am full of it: it is in my mind, on my lips, in how I walk, dance and respond to everything around me. The devil has nothing in me. He has no opportunity or occasion to act in my life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
