Spiritual Warfare: 'Enemies of God Don't Trust the Bible'

God's Power for Our Battles — Sunday, May 5, 2024

You adulterers! Don't you realize that friendship with the world makes you an enemy of God? I say it again: If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God. Do you think the Scriptures have no meaning? They say that God is passionate that the spirit he has placed within us should be faithful to him.
— James 4:4-5 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, I confess that the things of this world have drawn me in and made me doubt the validity and truth of Your Holy Word. I have desired friendship and acceptance with the world, and that has been more important to me than faithfully trusting Your absolute truths. Please remove my desire to please mankind, and replace it with a deep craving to want to please You, and may that lead to a greater trust of Scripture. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
