1 John 4:5-6
Those false prophets speak about matters of the world, and the world listens to them because they belong to the world. But we belong to God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever does not belong to God does not listen to us. This, then, is how we can tell the difference between the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
1 John 1:6

It is at war with the standards my mind sets and tries to take me captive to sin’s standards which still exist throughout my body. I thank God that our Lord Jesus Christ rescues me! So I am obedient to God’s standards with my mind, but I am obedient to sin’s standards with my corrupt nature.

In the morning, rising up a great while before sunrise, He went out and departed to a solitary place. And there He prayed.
