The War Within

James 4:1-3

We were built for peace, it’s what God intended for us.  The reality of our world however is ongoing battle and war.  This is also the reality of our own hearts and as a result we do battle with each other and against ourselves.  We have needs that were put there by God but when we pervert these needs through sin they become lusts, greed and evil desires.  It’s easier to project the blame on others than to admit our guilt and our part in the problem.  After all, what if I’m responsible for all these conflicts that exist in my life?  You will never be at peace within yourself or with others if you don’t surrender to God and depend upon him for your needs.  All others will disappoint you.
