“Friendship with this world is enmity with God.” – James 4:4
The lovers of this world are under the control of the world. They embrace and parley with “fleshly lusts that war against the soul.” – 2 Peter 2:11. Whoever embraces the ideals of this world, “whoever wishes to be a friend of this world,” ultimately makes his or herself an enemy of God – James 4:4
The Pride of Life:
The Pride of this Life wars against Spirit. Though the child of God lives in this world, he or she is not to be controlled by its power. This is the hatred of the world: that you, child of God, are not under its controlling power.
Grace to help in time of need:
Pray today that God will open your eyes to the controlling influences of this world. God is full of grace in this time of need. What you see and what you hear have the power to control how you reason. Pray that the Holy Spirit take complete control and deliver you from the power of the evil one. Abide in God’s Word and you will not be overcome by the influencing power of this world. Amen
