Matthew 19:26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
Anything is possible for the Lord, and walking with Him shows us new possibilities. We’ll see new opportunities. We’ll see opportunities to love; maybe we’ll see that our mom just needs a hug. We’ll see opportunities to help people; maybe our brother needs someone to challenge him to become who he can be. When we are walking with God, He’s not only going to show us what other things are possible for us to do with our lives, but He will, also, make things that seemed impossible become possible. If we don’t choose to walk with God, who else might we be walking with and what does that mean for our lives?
James 4:4 “…know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
Being friends with the world means that we’ve got enmity against God. Enmity is “the state or feeling of being actively opposed or hostile to someone or something.” When you find yourself forsaking God and pursuing the world, stop and ask yourself this ques-tion: do I want to be opposed to the Almighty? We can learn even from this verse’s specific phrasing: we are the ones who actively choose to be a friend with the world. With this choice are going to come consequences; we become enemies of God. I don’t know about you, but I do not want to be an enemy of the Creator.
