HE’S GOT NO CHOICE!
(Resist Satan And He’ll Flee In Terror!)
TO THE BIBLE James 4:7 NASB
“Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”
It’s amazing that some Christians still pray to God to deliver them from the devil. You need to realise that Jesus completely defeated the devil and placed him under your feet, so keep him there where he belongs! Resist the devil by using God’s Word against him.
God’s Word is the Sword of the Spirit; each time you speak the Word, you wield that Sword against the devil, and he flees from you. He runs from you terrified, because that’s what he’s been programmed to do when you resist him.
The devil doesn’t have any power. He’s a fully, terribly, and absolutely defeated foe! It’s your responsibility now to stop all his evil manipulations against you. He may have afflicted someone close to you, maybe a loved one. Now you’re going to put your foot down and say, “Never again will I let that happen!” Don’t ever pray, “Oh God, stop the devil!”
You’re the one to run the devil out of your life. Don’t be the one begging and crying, “Oh God, please don’t let the devil harm me!” God can’t do anything about that;
He’s already done all that’s needed to be done about the devil and given you the authority to keep him where he belongs. You’re a new creation; you’re superior to Satan and master over him. Never forget it!
1 Peter 5:8-10
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
Dear Father, I thank you for your Word and its operative power with which I put the devil to flight every day. I declare that every work of the devil remains paralyzed in and around my sphere of influence, in Jesus’ Name

Never be afraid of the devil. Declare this: “Devil, take your hands off my family, my schoolwork, my body, and everything else that concerns me in the Name of Jesus!”
