James 4:7-8 KJV
 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
Thinking about all the times I have heard someone say to me “resist the devil and he will flee”. That sounded good to me, so I would try it. I would resist and then I would lose, then I would resist only to lose again. Then one day I thought I would look that verse up for myself, and I found what was missing. You see you and I are not strong enough to resist our own lust much less the Devil. The part I was missing and most miss is that before we can resist we MUST be in submission to God.
