Perfect Perscription

“True Christianity is always a matter of the submission of the heart to God, something that only rescuing grace can produce” Paul David Tripp- New Morning Mercies

“You’re cheating on God. If all you want is your own way, flirting with the world every chance you get, you end up enemies of God and his way. And do you suppose God doesn’t care? The proverb has it that “he’s a fiercely jealous lover.” And what he gives in love is far better than anything else you’ll find. It’s common knowledge that “God goes against the willful proud; God gives grace to the willing humble.”

So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.
Don’t bad-mouth each other, friends. It’s God’s Word, his Message, his Royal Rule, that takes a beating in that kind of talk. You’re supposed to be honoring the Message, not writing graffiti all over it. God is in charge of deciding human destiny. Who do you think you are to meddle in the destiny of others?”
‭‭James‬ ‭4:4-12‬ ‭MSG‬‬

“So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” ‭‭

James‬ ‭4:7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”‭

James‬ ‭4:7‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“So be subject to God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him], and he will flee from you.”

‭‭James‬ ‭4:7‬ ‭AMP‬‬
