Today God says:
  "Resist the devil, and he will flee from you".

He promises me:
  "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you". (James 4:7)

My response to the word:
  The key to resisting the devil is found in the command, "Submit yourselves to God". I will walk in submission to the Lord throughout this day, then, when I resist the devil, I know he will flee from me. I will also remember that Satan doesn't care what I worship as long as I don't worship God. God will have first place in my life throughout this day.

My prayer:
  Dear Lord, thank you for giving me the ability to submit to you. I do so now, Lord, and I will continue to submit to you throughout this day. It is wonderful to know that the devil will flee from me when I resist him.

Today's scriptures:
  "Don't give the devil any opportunity to work". (Eph. 4:27 GW) "Put on all the armour that God supplies. In this way you can take a stand against the devil's strategies". (Eph. 6:11 GW) "Keep you mind clear, and be alert. Your opponent the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion as he looks for someone to devour". (1 Peter 5:8 GW)

Quote for today:
The man who walks with God always gets to his destination, (Henrietta Mears)

On this day:
On 16th May 1929 Warren Wiersbe was born in East Chicago. Well known as a speaker and author, his books include the "Be" series of commentaries on the books of the Bible.
