BE IN THE WORD

Fighting the Forces of Evil

Animal trainers say that the secret of handling lions, tigers, and leopards is to keep them constantly afraid of you. The instant they get over their fear, they will attack. They are treacherous beasts and often gather courage for an attack when the trainer’s eyes are turned away from them. One never knows when they will spring at their keeper if they have a chance to do it from behind. Our fight with the forces of evil is like that. Satan is always seeking to attack us from the rear or in ambush. He goes about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour, but he is a great coward when faced with courage. “Resist the devil and he will flee from you” is as true today as it was when the Apostle James first made the declaration.

James 4:7

     7     Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

NASB95
