Vol. VI, September 2000 With Obedience and Prayer Vanquish the Devil

Posted on January 5, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |


“This brings us to another beautiful part of the success over the devil: The right intention, proved by obedience, becomes prayer! It opens the soul before the Almighty God, and even invites God to enter. That is why obedience is like a protective wall around the soul which no devil can break through. By obedience the soul is united with God, the exact opposite to sin and to the destructive temptation of the devil. In obedience, man believes in the wisdom of God, and has hope in his goodness, such that he surrenders himself to Him in love and, consequently, finds ‘footing’ and steadiness and peaceful rest in God. God loves man always. However, he can only act in favor of man, when man is in favor of God! “Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you!” (James 4:8). And the Lord himself assured: “Everyone that shall confess me before men, I will also confess him before my Father who is in heaven” (Mt 10:32). “
