Humble Yourselves Before God

James 4:7-8, “Submit yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.”

I was confident, that I could minister to Witches and Warlocks, maybe even catch some of them who sacrifice children, and animals.

I was lead to a website in which, I found, what I thought I was looking for! As I was scrolling through it, each thing I saw repulsed me and I could not go on. I even tried to setup a Facebook Page, to bring them to me. Every sentence I typed, I asked God to for give me. I could not go on. The devil is the master of deception: I was convinced I could handle it!

Prayer

Lord Jesus, I am indeed humbled by my own willingness to be deceived, to lie to myself about things that I do that are not serving You or me well. I am humbled each time I must acknowledge that I do not do everything right. Help me to resist the devil, those things that would seek to deprive me of a closer walk with You.

Forgive me once again, Lord, for losing my way and let it be for me an experience of deep humility. Thank you for loving me so much that You seek always my highest good, even when You have to bring me to my knees to do that. Amen.
