Humble Submission

Scripture

6 But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” 7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. – James 4:6-7 ESV

Observation

God opposes the proud and gives grace to the humble. We are called to resist the devil and submit to God. 

Application

In this chapter James lays out the reasoning for our sinful choices. Friendship with the world leaves us enemies of God. When the decisions of our life are driven by the desires of our flesh then we will choose actions that are contrary to the humble, submitted life to Christ.  May we resist the desires that draw us and humbly turn to God for our significance. 

Prayer

Lord we humbly submit to you. May we look to you only for the needs of our life.
