James chapter 4 continues to just level me... This book is phenomenal. I need to read this book more than just once a year when I come around to it in the One Year Bible. Verse 7 is something surely each one of us should commit to memory: "Resist the Devil, and he will flee from you." This is so true. Resist. And he will flee! Please know this is true! Resist!
And verse 8 is so true as well: "Draw close to God, and God will draw close to you." Another one to put into memory - and practice each day. Have you drawn close to God this very day? And has God drawn close to you?
Verse 14 I think is so helpful for us to remember - and to give Thanks for each day we have: "How do you know what will happen tomorrow? For your life is like the morning fog--it's here a little while, then it's gone." Life is short. Every day is indeed a blessing and an opportunity to love and know God more. Please take advantage of each and every day God gives you. Diving into his Word each day through the One Year Bible is one amazing thing you can do every day. As is prayer of course!
Worship God: James 4:8 reminds me of Michael W. Smith's song "Draw Me Close:"
