Stand Against The Wiles of the Devil

By Clarance Walker (with the Lord)
Pastor of Ashland Avenue Baptist Church, Lexington, Kentucky, for 50 years.

"What can I do for you?" asked the night manager at the Baltimore telegraph office.

"Open the cash drawer and give me all your money," replied the man as he pulled out his gun.

"I will not do it," replied the manager firmly.

"There are nine slugs in this gun," said the man, "and I'm going to shoot you if you don't. You won't lose anything since the money is insured."

"I'm not going to do it," said the manager again. The gunman glared at the manager, and the manager glared right back at him. Suddenly, the gunman turned and fled without firing a shot. So, you see it pays to resist wicked people--sometimes. Reminds us of the Scripture which says, "Resist the devil, and he will flee from you" (James 4:7).

This enemy of our souls comes to us with his subtle suggestions to do something wrong, or with a wrong motive, and we need to be on guard constantly. He may threaten to try to coax us to do something wrong, but; if you say "no" to him a few times and really mean it, he will flee from you even as the gunman fled. Try it and see for yourself.
