How can you be immune to a cold or flu, if you do not get vaccinated or eat foods high in vitamin C, and are always exposing yourself to the cold weather? It's impossible!
Likewise, how can you be immune to Satan or get rid of him if you are not delivered from him, or get rid of what attracts him to you or keeps him inside you? This is where the plague called "PRIDE" presents itself.
Unfortunately - or with great difficulty - an envious person does not admit their feelings, let alone a proud person. When have you seen someone admit that they are arrogant, boastful or that they think they are better than everyone else, even if their life is a complete failure and they are still on a downhill spiral? They are just completely blind!
"But Naaman became furious and went away and said, ‘Indeed, I said to myself, ‘He will surely come out to me and stand and call on the name of the Lord his God and wave his hand over the place and heal the leprosy.' Are not the Abanah and the Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? Could I not wash in them and be clean?' So he turned and went away in a rage," 2 Kings 5.11 -12
Surely, Naaman was part of this group of people who do not understand that in order to overcome the problem, they must first overcome themselves (PRIDE).
Notice how he wanted the VIP treatment, but he only overcame the leprosy after disposing of his arrogance and accepting to enter the waters of the Jordan.
The only ingredient in this recipe: "Get down from your pedestal and overcome your pride!"
