Straight-forward

5 Or do you suppose the Scripture speaks in vain when it says that there is a spirit in us which longs to envy?

via James 4 KJV;CJB – From whence come wars and fightings – Bible Gateway.

Doesn’t that just mess with you?

There is a spirit in me that longs to envy. There is a spirit in me that flat-out likes, craves and goes after envying.

Isn’t that what it says?

Well yes but I’m not really like that, really I’m not we might say.

Does GOD lie?

Well, no.

So what then? Do we or do we not have a spirit in us that goes after all kinds of evil?

We have two choices.

We can humble ourselves and admit it to ABBA and He will give us grace to overcome.

6 But the grace he gives is greater, which is why it says, “God opposes the arrogant, but to the humble he gives grace.”

via James 4 KJV;CJB – From whence come wars and fightings – Bible Gateway.

Or we can refuse and find ourselves fighting against GOD HIMSELF.  And who do you think will win that one in the end?

Well that was pretty straight-forward wasn’t it?

Without any wit of flippancy, only honest praise, ABBA, You are the straight-shooter and I am so grateful. So grateful that You tell like it is. So grateful that nothing is hidden from You and I can always, always trust You to deal rightly with me and always love me. And not just me but all Your children and so I pray for each of us that we will be bold to come and confess our sins, to humble ourselves and work with You to be lifted up, carried into Your Presence for worship and service; thank You in the Mighty name of Yeshua.

Confessing we are blessed on this 45th day of 2014,

Kathie
