Kitchen Table Devotions

James 4 Day 5

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9 Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.           James 4:7-10

The presence of the Lord changes everything.  God’s not waiting for us to do something, He’s waiting for us to desire something, to desire Him and His passion, presence, purpose, and power.  The confused spirit is not conscious of God’s presence and passion.  Let your spirit cause you to step toward God.  Desire His presence, passion, and perspective today and you’ll find yourself purging yourself of everything that interferes with your consciousness of Him and His hand that is lifting you to face this day.
