Olabode explains that verse neatly, I just want add that when you have surrendered completely to HIS lordship, the whole host of heaven, not part but the whole host will be behind you, that 's the devil,s nightmare, fleeing will not be an option. Amen to that.

Devil will flee from you, if you don 't give him any chance.
Olabode's comment on 2014-07-24 05:59:41:
To my understanding, submission in this particular verse referred to 'obedience ' that is, if we obey and yield to the instructions and commandments of God, we can easily resist the devil and he will flee from us. The bible says in Prob that, if the ways of man pleases God, he makes his enemy at peace with him. The steps to resist the devil are discipline the flesh that is, put it under the control of the Holy Spirit, obey God totally and completely, have faith in God, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith, read, study and meditate in the bible regularly, spend quality time with him, fasting and prayers.

When I submit to God that is the first step in resisting the devil. For without Jesus I can do nothing The devil can 't stay where the Word of God is and where His blood is applied . Submitting is not easy It is always something that you do not want to do . Jesus did not want to go to the cross But So He submitted to God and said Not my will but your will be done . And that was through agony in prayer.

GIVE YOURSELF COMPLETELY TO GOD BY OBEYING HIS WORDS AND DO NOT ACCEPT ANY ADVICE FROM THE DEVIL BY REJECTING EVIL

Submit yourself completely the mind body will power Give the Holy Spirit authority to take control and guide you The Holy Spirit will show you what you need to guard against and what the Devil s plan is against you God s Spirit will show you how to overcome the Devil through faithfully reading your Bible and steadfast praying Resist the Devil for Christ has already won the battle Always have the armour of God Eph 6 10 18 on soldier and brave marchly onwards
