Submit, Resist, and Draw Near

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flees from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands you sinners, and purify your hearts…”

— James 4:7-8

This summer has presented me with some big opportunities to face some humbling challenges. I have continued to struggle with long Covid symptoms since getting sick back in March. As I pushed through the fatigue of those symptoms out at Camp, I found myself hit with a case of heat exhaustion that left me unable to work in the sun or heat.

As you identify the challenges in your life, join me and pray James 4:7-8.

Lord I submit to you _(personal challenge)__.

Satan, I resist you in Jesus' name.

Lord, I want to draw near to you and for you to draw near to me.

Purify my heart and help be be faithful to you.

I encourage you to join me in praying James 4:7-8 for whatever challenge you may be facing today. With God’s grace let's submit fully to the Lord and ask him to purify our hearts and help us to be obedient to him through even the most challenging circumstances.
