James Chapter 4:1-6

Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you

James 4:1-6
1
What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you?
2
You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask.
3
You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.
4
You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
5
Or do you suppose it is to no purpose that the Scripture says, “He yearns jealously over the spirit that he has made to dwell in us”?
6
But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
