What to do with the devil
Let me tell you a story I read about Smith Wigglesworth.
Smith Wigglesworth was out one day, he saw a woman who was waiting for a bus with her dog following her. She said to the dog ‘Get back’ but the dog only shook its tail. She said the second time ‘Get back’ but it won’t obey. Then the bus arrived. This woman stamped her feet and shouted Gett….’ The dog tucked its tail under and ran off. Smith Wigglesworth forgetting himself shouted: that is how you have got to treat the devil!
You have been informed that you have authority over the devil but it may not easily succumb until you have stamped your feet or taken your stand on the Word.
It is interesting that the same letter “d” starts the words devil and dog. I have always felt that the pronoun ‘he’ shouldn‘t be used for the devil, it should be ‘it’. Using ‘he‘ is an exaggeration because the devil is not worth much. If you see the devil, tell him I said that it is not worth much.
