TOPIC: RESIST; DON’T ASSIST!

READ: I Peter 5:6-10
6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,
7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
10 But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.

MEMORISE:
Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you (James 4:7).

EXPOSITION
There is much outcry everyday by people concerning “the work of the devil”. Everything that goes bad is credited to the devil. The devil is so portrayed and magnified, as if he is omnipresent, omniscience or omnipotent, whereas he is not; he only succeeds on lives that render assistance to, and cooperation with him. If Satan fails to gain control over your heart, then he cannot triumph over you.

By assisting the devil, you give him chance in your life, home, business or ministry. You open up your cracks and loop-holes to the devil when you sin against God (I Pet. 5:8). The Bible has expressly informed us to resist him in all ways and in all what he represents. The resultant effect of resisting the devil and his agents is that, he will flee from you. Jesus Christ Himself resisted him during temptation (Mt. 4:1-8).

Stop indulging and involving in shoddy, questionable, controversial and unbiblical ‘deals’! Many have brought trouble on themselves and they say “it is the devil” No doubt, the devil remains the mastermind of all forms of evils on earth, but evildoers need to be asked whether they were forced, or manipulated to perpetrate such evils! As you set out on today’s activities, resolve within you to resist the devil and not to assist him, and he shall flee from you.

PRAYER POINTS
1. O Lord, assist me never to assist the devil to do anything against me and others.
2. Lord, assist our youths to overcome youthful lust that make them fall prey to the devil.
3. Father, punitively expose, and restore ministers who are dining and wining with the devil in Jesus’ name.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: 2 Kings 18:17 – 20:5; John 12:19 – 12:40.
