Beware. Be Wise

Today's reading: James 4:1-12

James continues his message of warning in James 4, taking on a firmer and harsher tone as he addresses the problem of seeking after things of the world above seeking after God. In verse 4 he refers to Christ-followers who aren't fully focused on God as adulterous people, asking them,

"Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God?"

The mindset of the world is certainly at odds with God's standards and values. But even though we live in the world, we don't have to live and act like those of the world. When we keep our eyes focused on God and draw fully on the power of the Holy Spirit residing within us, we can live a life that is pleasing to God, and in so doing, be a bright and shining light for Him.

Keeping our eyes on God is a daily choice and undertaking. So how intentional are you about taking in God's Word and praying on a daily basis? What are some things you do (actions you take) when you're tempted to give in to the pull of worldly thinking? Tami

Being in daily communion with God is a necessity in my life, and it's become something that occurs regularly. Seeing life's events from His perspective helps in knowing how to handle them in such a way that glorifies Him.

It's so easy to comform to the worlds standards. But setting my eyes above ,all the chaos and circumstances, looking toward God. He is my healer the comforter, my great physician, my eternal not temporary, it's takes hard determination. But in the end, that's where I want to be.
Call upon the Lord
What would Jesus do?
If still doubtful...
Ask yourself these question before engaging...
Remember is it worth it?(what you just did)
Can you look in the mirror and say that was a good call
