“Do not let sin reign in your mortal body — that you should obey it in its lusts.” Romans 6:12

“Resist the devil — and he will flee from you.” James 4:7

O my soul, how awful is your state by nature and practice! Sin has gained a dominion over you; its influence is universal over soul and body, and over every son and daughter of Adam. Sin has brought death on the body and subjected the soul to everlasting misery; its authority is unjust, and its power is cruel and destructive.

Lord Jesus, let me adore Your effectual grace, that it has in any measure delivered me from its power; and assist my poor heart in opposing and rejecting every temptation to obey it in the lusts thereof. Let Your precious blood effectually secure me from the guilt of sin in this life, and the punishment of it in eternity.

O my soul, if you are a faithful follower of Jesus, though Satan received a deadly wound when Christ was crucified for you — yet his malice is still the same. You have a thousand enemies — and the devil is the leader of them all. O may I, with the deepest humility, look to Jesus, rest upon Jesus, and derive daily strength from Him to resist the devil; and finally to come off conqueror, and more than conqueror, through Him who loved me. May I daily realize that I am not under the law — but under grace; for then sin will not, cannot, have dominion over me.
