Read James chapter 4

VERSE:

James 4:1–What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you?

TRUTH:

When we are all following God’s desires, we will all have unity. However, when we break away and start to look after our own personal desires, we start to see the fighting and the quarreling among people. As our personal desires battle against our desire to please God, we will feel the battle within us and it will come out as fighting and quarreling with ourselves and each other. Are we at peace with others? If not, we need to go back and review if we are seeking after God’s desires or our own.

RESPONSE:

Father, There is always such a battle within me of my own desires wanting to take control. Help me to submit those desires to You and allow You to defeat them. Give me the single-minded focus to desire only You.
