But He gives more grace. Therefore He says:
“God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble.” – James 4:6
O Child of God! Remember in whose presence we stand. Breathe in His will, zeal and purpose. Stand in His Love. Walk in His Grace. Be covered by the cloak of humility.
For we know our God!
He is the Giver of Grace.
He is the Resister of the Proud!
He is the lifting power of the man who accepts as fundamentally true, all the works completed in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is the humble man. The man who sees himself in the light of Christ..only Christ! Such a man is full of the knowledge of Truth…and Agape. He is not puffed up by pride…he is not vain.
He is not parochial in his visions of Christ and his outlook on the place and purpose of man….He sees as Christ shows, speaks like Christ demonstrated, walks in the heavenly insignia of humility- cloaked in Love…lit up by Grace…overflowing with strength.
For this humble man is not weak and at the mercy of the whim and caprices of wickedness. No! Far from it! His true portrait is a far cry from the assumed speculations of the world on what he ought to look like and how he ought to behave. This humble man is above such humdrum themes…for he is constantly being lifted…on the buoyant wings of God’s favour…for pride in him has been subdued and bridled by the unwavering chains of humility…
And so we see, as grace abounds towards this humble man, he walks in even greater expressions of this heavenly posturing…
