As Christians, we ought to be active in the power of God. This means that our strength is not our own; it is not a human type of force. Our strength is not of the world, but our power is found in Jesus Christ. Apostle Paul speaks out in us in Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
With God’s strength that we overcome the power of the devil: “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7. It is by first lining up ourselves with the strength of God through our total submission to Him that we can withstand the tricks and schemes of the evil one Ephesians 6:10-11.

Finally, one more thing it says in Mark 10:27 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man, this is impossible, but not with God: all things are possible with God.”
