James 4 Day 3
You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. 5 Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us? 6 But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”
I know it’s hard to see but God is speaking to who we are more than what we do. All this time He has been addressing our spirit, our heart, our consciousness. There is no life in loving this world. Many of us live afraid of what we’re going to lose, but believers live afraid of what they’re going to miss. God has more and He gives us His spirit to get it. Only the humble, who don’t want to miss what God has or is doing, get it.
