    It was a joy for the Lord Jesus to humble himself before the Lord and He got highly exalted . So therefore I ought to do the same. It is not easy because I have to crucify my flesh but OH !! the Blessings. The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God cannot keep you. Blessings and Joy ahead and Victory.
  • MPD on James 4:10
    This verse again serves as a reminder about core of our faith foundation such as "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Ph 4 13 "
  • LAFFEMME on James 4
    Verse 2 says, we ask but we receive not, why because we ask amiss... to me it is saying we dont receive because we ask with the wrong motives, we ask for things we desire and not what is going to give glory to father YAHWEH and so we don 't receive
  • Hazel on James 4
    AFTER STUDYING THIS PASSAGE OF SCRIPTURE MY UNDERSTANDING BECAME MORE OPEN ABOUT OBEYING GODS WORD
  • Moses Njenga on James 4:7
    Olabode explains that verse neatly, I just want add that when you have surrendered completely to HIS lordship, the whole host of heaven, not part but the whole host will be behind you, that 's the devil,s nightmare, fleeing will not be an option. Amen to that.
  • Darrion on James 4
    Olabode,that was put very well and I couldn 't agree with you more. Fasting and Praying, not too many churches is preaching that anymore let alone true Holiness. You have to mortify this flesh daily in order to be considered a child of God. DENY YOURSELF!!!
  • Blessed on James 4
    Never let yourself believe that GOD don 't see you. He is omnipresent he see even in the darkest of dark. HUMBLE YOURSELVES IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD AND HE SHALL LIFT YOU UP.
  • Olabode on James 4:7
    Devil will flee from you, if you don 't give him any chance.
  • Olabode on James 4:7
    To my understanding, submission in this particular verse referred to 'obedience ' that is, if we obey and yield to the instructions and commandments of God, we can easily resist the devil and he will flee from us. The bible says in Prob that, if the ways of man pleases God, he makes his enemy at peace with him. The steps to resist the devil are discipline the flesh that is, put it under the control of the Holy Spirit, obey God totally and completely, have faith in God, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith, read, study and meditate in the bible regularly, spend quality time with him, fasting and prayers.
  • MockingBird on James 4:7
    When I submit to God that is the first step in resisting the devil. For without Jesus I can do nothing The devil can 't stay where the Word of God is and where His blood is applied . Submitting is not easy It is always something that you do not want to do . Jesus did not want to go to the cross But So He submitted to God and said Not my will but your will be done . And that was through agony in prayer.
  • CHIDI on James 4:7
    GIVE YOURSELF COMPLETELY TO GOD BY OBEYING HIS WORDS AND DO NOT ACCEPT ANY ADVICE FROM THE DEVIL BY REJECTING EVIL
  • Jcvr4life on James 4
    I understand that we are on borrowed time. Our life is not our own. Oftimes we say, "my time is precious " well it is not just a clich , the hour is at hand, and we know not when that precious time has reached its course. Fact is, its GODS time, and it is to be treated as if it were our last moment.Savour the WORD, BE ready when HE comes, treat those you love and come into contact with as if it were your last time ever seeing them, love on them, pray for them. Thanks be to GOD, Amen!
  • Roderick on James 4:17
    I know that the word of God Never fails me at anytime I think we should all take heed to the word of God because like the scripture we will all be held accountable before God
  • Trish on James 4:2
    I have pray about it, I have talk to my self about it, I even dream aabout it, ye have not because ye ask not I am ask God to bless me and every way of my life.
  • Elder Doris Harrell on James 4:15
    Oh, look at how gracious the LORD is to give us an escape from making rash promises and remarks with our mouths. Our intent may be honorable but truly we don 't know what we will be doing on tomorrow. This is all in his hands. When we say what James 4 15 is saying we are truly speaking the truth!!! I can 't tell you how many times I have regretted saying what I will do or where I will go and wishing later that I had never made those promises. He has, indeed, in James 4 15 given us a way of escape from the temptation of making rash promises with our mouths. And I just want to say thank you LORD.
  • Evodia on James 4
    I love paul when sayn we should submit ourselfs unto de lord, and resist de devil and he will flee from us,meaning every chriastians have to take part to resist de enemy,if u dont resist him then he will stick with you and by your side, therfore i urge every believer to run away from de works of de enemy, so it should flee frm u
  • Penina on James 4:17
    Thats why the gospel is to b preached to the 4 ends of the World ,no one to escape Judgement at the end.All will b held accountable of our own deeds.
  • Munyao on James 4:17
    Do assume and fail to do the right thing when you are also aware
  • Errol bennett on James 4:14
    James wants us to understand that we have no control over life We do not know about the next moment of our lives Life is very valuable and we must think about how we live our lives Let us not take anything for granted especially life We only have one life therefore we must live it with purpose What is your purpose in life
  • Stephanie on James 4:7
    Submit yourself completely the mind body will power Give the Holy Spirit authority to take control and guide you The Holy Spirit will show you what you need to guard against and what the Devil s plan is against you God s Spirit will show you how to overcome the Devil through faithfully reading your Bible and steadfast praying Resist the Devil for Christ has already won the battle Always have the armour of God Eph 6 10 18 on soldier and brave marchly onwards
  • Jenelle on James 4:11
    We, as followers of Christ, need to be so careful in what we say about others. The world is watching us; and even more important, God is watching and is our judge.
  • Betty Asantewaa Arthur on James 4
    VERSE(1) STRIFE COMES AS A RESULT SELFISH DESIRES,SO THEREFORE, IF SELF IS SILENCED THERE WILL BE NO FIGHTING. THEN WHY CAN WE MASTER SELF CONTROL ESPECIALLY CHRISTIANS THAT WE MAY HAVE A PEACEFUL,MARRIAGES,FRIENDSHIP,ORGANISATION, COUNTRY,CONTINENT AND WORLD AS A WHOLE.
  • Karen on James 4:8
    God will knock at the door of a heart. If that heart excepts the knock, God will come in. Clean hands and a clean heart God can fill to do his work. A double minded person is not sure of what they want, which in turn can prohibit them from turning to God.
  • Janice Newton@rocketmail.com on James 4:4
    I am guilty of this act of always wanting things my way and selfish desire's,but God said seek ye first the kingdom of God and his rightousness and all the things will be added on. Jesus forgive me, help me! help me ! help me, it is not about me.
  • One on James 4
    Beloved, Let James chapter 4 Bless you, to remember, that God wants us to, daily resist our selevs; For our flesh wants what the devil has to offer us, which is: Pleasure, dominion, self-will, selfishness, self-pride, luxury, and self-fulfillment, for the Bible says in, 1 John 2:16; That, all that is in the world is; the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.

    So the Bible shows us that our nature is with satan, and against God. So we must be attentive to that fact, and then keep our focus on denying ourselves, not even trusting in our own hearts, cause the Bible says, in Jeremiah 17:9, that the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked. so we must read, study (meaning memorize),and meditiate on this chapter.
  • Herman German III on James 4
    Humm? America hasn't existed for even three hundred years, but they follow the same practices as Sodom, Gomorrah, and the other destroyed cities by allowing homosexuality, amongst some of the other morals.
  • Akuinor dave on James 4
    Lord per your word in this chapter, humble me, cleanse me and purify my heart.
  • Mulela on James 4
    The verse is very strong, and make me want to fight the devil that lives inside me which I'm going to do because the verse clearly mentions that whatever good things you want to do, God will stand by you, therefore, I am going to start by inviting the holy spirit to be within this journey that Iím about to take, because itís no easy but with the father God and his Son nothing is impossible for me.
  • Ricardo Richard Chikumbi on James 4:13
    Being a Christian is to be active. And do what is pleasing the Lord GOD. Now is the time to go in Godís field.
  • Robert on James 4
    When we seek the truth in our walk with Christ and clearly, he tells us how we are to walk with him in truth and love. If only we all could see that God has truly opened his heart for us to see how we are to walk and talk,.. God is good to all that seek the truth.
