Daily Dig: 4/1/21

Scripture: James 4

We can be friends with the world or friends with God…not both.

Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. 

Vs. 4

God wants us to choose Him.

Or do you suppose it is to no purpose that the Scripture says, “He yearns jealously over the spirit that he has made to dwell in us”?

Vs. 5

I like the next line:

But he gives more grace. 

Vs. 6

Unlimited grace.

  • Submit yourselves to God
  • Resist the devil
  • Draw near to God
  • Cleanse your hands
  • Purify your hearts
  • Be wretched and mourn and weep
  • Humble yourselves before the Lord.

Come close.

13 Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— 14 yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.

We never know what a day may bring forth.

“If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” 

Vs. 15

He is in control.

Come close to Him.

Journal: Write a prayer submitting your day to God. Submit tomorrow to Him too… and the next day. Submit your plan to His. Let His will be your will.

Move: Get outside and go for a run today. 3-4 miles. Run/walk as needed.

{Beginner’s run #16: Walk 5 minutes to warm-up, then run 7 minute/walk 1 minute x4, then walk 5 minutes to cool-down.}

Praise the Lord and just show up.
