It’s Not Good To Be Alone by Mario Latini


Today's featured devotional...
footprints sandGood People. Fine Christians. Bible believing faith people. How could this tragedy happen to them? James 3:16 gives us insight into how anyone, even “faith people” can open the door to evil in their lives.

“For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.” (James 3:16)

Every evil work would certainly apply to death, disease, or tragedy wouldn’t it? Words of envy and strife can set confusion in motion and cause problems to multiply and attract likeminded angry people and situations. If not consciously released, the pressure continues to build, often seething beneath the surface. Then when the problems and tragedy come, they cry out to God: “Oh, God, why in the world did this come to pass? God, why did you allow it?” But God had nothing to do with it. They violated the laws of God by allowing strife to control their lives.

Where there is strife, there is confusion and every evil work. The New Living Translation says “…There you will find disorder and evil of every kind.” (James 3:16) Christians let satan into their lives through strife. Paul said we are to give him no place. We are in charge. We can keep satan out or give him a place to work. Don’t give him any place! Don’t give place to anger, blame and contention.

Ephesians 4:26 says, “Let not the sun go down upon your wrath.” One minister friend said, “Many times I have had to break the speed limit to get home before the sun went down to tell my wife, Honey, you were wrong, but I forgive you anyway!”

Don’t let the sun go down on your wrath. Why? Because where there is strife, there is confusion and every evil work. Strife in the home is an open door to satan. If not corrected, it will bring tragedy to your marriage and to your home. Strife in your business or work place will hinder or even stop your growth and prosperity.

Continual strife, unforgiveness, and anger will eventually cause physical illness in your body and affect others around you. There are many Christians who start out in love, but end up in strife with others.

Instead of forgiving and acting in love, they open the door wide to the devil. It doesn’t matter who is right or wrong, love and forgiveness releases you from the power of satan, confusion and his evil works.
