God Is Not The Source Of Your Problems

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

God is not the one who is putting problems on us. If you believe that God is the source of your problems, it will take away your resistance, because you will think you are resisting God. You will not resist and fight against things in your life that are negative if you think God is the one who is doing that because you will think you are fighting against God. If God is the one putting problems on us to teach us something, then why is He telling us to resist the devil? My friend, don’t sit down for the devil to torment, mistreat and molest you. Resist him and he will flee.

Satan knows he has no legal right to steal from you, kill, and destroy you, unless he can persuade you to hand over to him your God given power and authority as sons and daughters of God. The devil is roaring like a lion looking for someone to devour. The Bible says in 1 Peter 5:8-9 that: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.”  So, you see, it’s not God who brings sufferings and trouble. It’s the devil.
