(God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. – James 4:6)
When successful, we may lose sight of our own frailty and allow our hearts to fill with destructive pride. James pointed us away from the danger of pride by pointing us to humility and to God. He wrote, “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble” (James 4:6). The key to that statement is grace. Nothing is more wonderful! The Lord alone deserves thanks and praise – especially for the grace He has lavished on us.
Our achievements, success, or greatness are not rooted in ourselves. They are the product of God’s matchless grace, upon which we are eternally dependent. – Bill Crowder
New mercies every morning,
Grace for every day,
New hope for every trial,
And courage all the way. – Mc Veigh
God’s grace is infinite love expressing itself through infinite goodness.
