Did you know that the Bible clearly teaches that “my will” is “evil?” (see James 4:13-17).  Biblically, when we choose our will over God’s will, we are acting “arrogantly,” which God describes as “evil.”So, we’ve got quite a challenge then, don’t we?  Because all human “strength” tempts us toward “my will.”  Whether riches, fame, power and influence, beauty, physical abilities, intellectual prowess or simple choice, all are tools in the hands of the devil when they are not submitted to God.
Indeed, the choice of “my will” over God’s, gives the devil “place.”  This is why sinful emotions (i.e. anger, greed, lust), when acted upon, give the devil the “opportunity”
(see Ephesians 4:27), that he craves.
“The glory of young men is their strength…” Proverbs 20:29
But the glory of wise men is their weakness! (see 2 Corinthians 12:7-9).Hmmm…That sheds new light on the instruction: “Finally, be strong in the Lord, and the strength of His might.”   Ephesians 6:10

Doesn’t it?
