James Fraser shares of his adoption of the simple but powerful practice of using appropriate scriptures brought to his mind by the Holy Spirit to resist the devil and have him flee in defeat.
Brother Yun faced the temptation to eat after he had declared a fast. Through scriptural remembrance to resist the devil, he overcame the temptation.
Corrie ten Boom uses the beautiful analogy of a belfry to explain to a girl who had repented and received deliverance from lust and impurity. Even though she sometimes may still be tempted by her old ways, her deliverance in Christ is undoubted, because Satan's hands have been removed from the bell rope.
