God Shows Favor To The Humble

by | Jan 19, 2016 | Vital Life Application Devotions


James 4:4-8 New International Version (NIV)

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. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us? But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says:

“God opposes the proud
    but shows favor to the humble.”

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.


Dear Lord, I desire a friendship with You. I know that friendship with the world pulls me away from You. I choose to grow my friendship with You. Thank you for your grace and mercy on my soul and my life. I strive to walk in humility. I strive to walk in submission. I will resist the devil, and he will flee. I will come near you, Lord. When I come near to You, You come near to me. I will keep my mind on You, Lord Jesus. Thank you for your saving grace on my life. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
