Message of the Day: “So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7, NLT)

Continuing his teaching on the evil results of worldly attitudes, James explains why fights and quarrels occur. Selfish ambition fight against the more spiritual motives. Some Christians are constantly looking for more power, increased possessions and higher status. Because they want the wrong things, they do not pray. If they pray, they find their prayers refused, and so try to do things their own way. This is worldliness, and it is opposed to the ways of God. God has given believers the Holy Spirit to control their lives and he wants no rivals, such as the spirit of worldliness, to turn them away from him.

God opposes those who, in their pride, ignore him and act according to their own ambitions. He strengthens those who, in their humility, draw near to him and resist Satan’s temptations to rely on worldly methods. While we submit to God, we are to resist the devil and oppose all the his schemes. If we do that in the powerful name of Jesus, we will surely overcome. The devil can never conquer us if we continue to resist him.
