4-45 Application for Nov 8-9, 2014 :: James 4:7-8

===

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.

James 4:7-8

===

Three Commands –
1. Submit yourself to God
2. Resist the devil
3. Draw near to God

Two Promises –
1. The devil will flee from you.
2. God will draw near to you.

Do you want the promises? Wouldn’t it be nice if the devil withdrew from you today? Do you want God to draw near to you?

So: What do you need to do to resist the devil? What do you have to shut off or run from. What do you need to say ‘no’ to?

And what do you need to do to submit to God and draw near to him. What do you need to say ‘Yes’ to?

Do those things. Pray for the grace to do those things.
