7 So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
We choose to sin. Sinning is simple, straightforward and a choice. We can choose not to sin. We can’t do it in our own strength but the Lord God in His glorious strength rejoices when we permit Him to make us strong. By the power of the Lord High God active in us we can indeed resist the devil and he will flee from us.
