From 9/7/2017 Morning Devotions:

“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. 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”? But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”

‭‭James‬ ‭4:4-8‬ ‭ESV‬‬

A note from Bob;  The spirit referred to here is not the Holy Spirit that believers receive when being baptized into the body of Christ upon our confession of faith, but the spirit of Free Will that God gave all of us!  Understand that we were all born with the awareness of sin, but without the intimate knowledge of it!  God yearns that we make the choice to follow His heart!
