Fleeing only comes after . . .

James 4:7 says : Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist (oppose) the devil, and he will flee (seek safety by flight) from you.

Fleeing of the devil only comes after resisting and that resistance comes through submission to God. There is another similar scripture that ties into this in Matthew 17 ..

18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. 19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? 20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. 21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

Just something that came to me on my way home
