Overcome Demonic Influence

In this character series, it is important to learn to say no and fight the temptations that we will be faced with as Christians.

Eph 4:27 says, “Leave no [such] room or foothold for the devil [give no opportunity to him]“

A part of being submissive to Christ is also resisting temptations.

James 4:7 says, “So be subject to God.  Resist the devil [stand firm against him] and he will flee from you.”

How do we resist?  We are champions in Christ and overcomers by the authority of our words.  God gave us armor for a reason.  (Eph 6:10-17) We need to put it on daily in prayer.  Can you imagine a soldier going out into an open field without a weapon or protection of any kind?  It wouldn’t be pretty.  God doesn’t want us to go out into the world like that either and that is why we need to have our armor on and use the Word and our authority as our weapons.  We need the sword of the Word and our shield of faith to stand up and resist temptations in these last days.  If you are not in the Word and seeking God’s face daily, you will have a much more challenging time.  By being equipped in the Word, you will have a holy boldness inside of you that will reveal itself in the face of temptation giving you the ability to take a stand for the Lord.

God has provided you with all you need in His Word to live a holy and victorious life separated unto Him!
