God: gave great thought to this plan….
James 4:6 (KJV) “But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble”.
It might be a little word, seems a bit inconspicuous, doesn’t take up a lot of the English letters, but one thing about it is that it is very authentic and powerful in it’s impact.
“Grace” as it comes from God is enough to let the blind man walk; the lame to leap; the poor to be clothed in glory; it allows for the proud to receive humility.
When we are lifted up in pride, the grace of God gives us another chance to fall prostrate at His feet and cry for mercy. His grace, so sweet, so measureless, so sure.
It is grace that has brought me this far and of a surety it will take me home: God’s grace…
