4-45 Application for Nov 17, 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.

===

Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.

Psalm 127:1

God can succeed without you, but you can’t succeed without God.

Are you open to the idea that everything that ever happens is miraculous?

Give it to God and he was sustain you.

“Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth.

That’s what should give us joy. That’s what should get our mouths talking.
