humbling grace

With our internet being so wacky for so many days, I almost missed April.  But there she is in all her daffodil glory. Spring is here!

"Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord and He shall lift you up." ~ James 4:10

This verse makes sense if you read all the verses from the beginning of this chapter.  James is addressing worldliness and the troubles it causes in our lives when becoming a friend of the world which makes you an enemy of God. James encourages believers to submit to God, resist the devil, draw near to God, cleanse your hands and purify your hearts, be wretched, mourn, weep.  

Humble yourselves before Him.

With that humbling comes more of His amazing grace! (verse 6)

Nothing better than being lifted up by His grace when we are humbled and desiring to draw near to Him.


Blessings,
