It's Wk. 8! Here's what I've learned so far:
S. James 4:1-8
O. v.1 - We desire what we cannot have and want what we do not need
v.2 - We have not because we ask not
v.3 - However, when we ask, what are our true intentions?
v.4 - We can't serve two masters.
v.5 - His spirit resides in us
v.6 - God gives grace to the humble and sets himself against the proud
v.7 - Submit yourself to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you
v.8 - Draw closer to God and he will draw closer to you.
A. Ask God to create in me a clean heart and renewed mind
Be not a friend to the world. Remain humble.
Guard my heart, filter my thoughts, emotions and actions
P. I must always pray.
P.S. I admire the promise/motto Courtney ("Walk with the King") and Angela ("Love God Greatly") leave us with when we visit. After much thought and prayer, I was given a promise that spoke to my heart:
19I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.
Until next time....
