Living as a friend of the world makes you an enemy of God. When you are going through adversity, all you want to hear is that things will be ok and that’s fine. However, when you are struggling within, that raging inner battle, somebody should not tell you that it will be ok unless you turn to God for help.
James, chapter 4, verse 5, says, “Do you think that the Scripture says in vain, ‘He yearns jealously for the spirit that lives in us’. But He gives more grace. For this reason, it says: God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” My friend, you will not be okay until you humble yourself and surrender to God through Jesus Christ. People turn to various kicks to fill a vacuum that only the Holy Spirit can fill in their lives.
We must submit to God, then we can resist the devil, and he will flee from us. Your soul is in the balance. You need to hear the truth that you are an enemy of God without Jesus Christ as your Saviour. You are either with God or against Him.
