“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” - James 4:7
We often live under a sense of undue pressure and temptation. In times of weariness and worry, we can be prone to both vice and despair. But God has a different plan for us. His intention is to release courage and endurance in each one of us so that we can persevere into peace and joy. How do we do that? We must choose to submit ourselves to the Lord and to His ways and trust in His grace to help us. As we do, He fills us with power and enables us to overcome the forces of darkness and discouragement. Let’s hold fast to our faith in the One who loves us. He causes us to triumph through Christ Jesus!
