Your actions are often fueled by fears and insecurities. This brings about stress in your life. You don’t have to prove who you are and you don’t need to compete. Can you just believe Me? I Am Creator of the Universe. You are Mine. These fears and insecurities are earthly, unspiritual even demonic. When they move you, they cause disorder and every kind of evil. Bring these fears to Me and exchange them for peace. Bring your unbelief to Me, and stop hiding behind it. It is as though you want to disbelieve so that you will have an excuse for your actions and someone to blame. But I have told you what is good. To act justly and love mercy and walk humbly with Me. Cultivate peace for peace is good soil for the growth of the fruit of righteousness.
James 3:14-16 but if you have bitter envy and selfish ambition in your heart, don’t brag and deny the truth. Such wisdom does not come from above but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where envy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every kind of evil. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peace-loving, gentle, compliant full of mercy and good fruits, without favoritism and hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who cultivate peace.
