More grace

Hand_ofGod2

JAMES 4:6-10                                                                          

But He gives us more grace.  That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”  Submit yourselves, then, to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  Come near to God and He will come near to you.  Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.  Grieve, mourn and wail.  Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom.  Humble yourselves before the Lord and He will lift you up.

 

Dear Lord,

Thank you for Your grace, I am humble before You.  I resist the devil’s countless suggestions of disobedience by drawing close to You, though I still stumble.  It is only by Your grace and nothing in ourselves that may save our souls – I call out to Jesus, my Intercessor before the Father; My Counselor who dries my tears; my Peace amidst the storm; and the Lifter of my head.  Yes, Lord, You lift me up in body, spirit and soul when I humbly bow before You.
