Self-Promotion Strife Demons vs Waiting on the LORD

You can’t walk in strife and wait on the Lord at the same time.
When you plan and plot to take what you think is yours with self-promotion instead of waiting on the Lord, you create a divisive and fractious spirit, and you release demons to get your own will done instead of waiting for God’s will to be done.
For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. James 3:16
Strife: Eritheia
electioneering or intriguing for office
apparently, in the NT a courting distinction, a desire to put one’s self forward, a partisan and fractious spirit which does not disdain low arts
partisanship, fractiousness
