Bits & Pieces: Giving (10)

"But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, 'GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE," (James 4:6).

* The prime obstruction to the grace of God in our lives is pride in all its forms. Although completely accepted in the Lord Jesus, we are usable only as we humble ourselves in His presence.
The greater our humility, the greater His grace. Pray that He will increase your willingness to be humbled.

* Although humility is the key which unlocks the floodgate of God's grace, we must not focus on being humble as our goal. Rather, we are to continually become more and more aware of who God is in all His greatness, thereby keenly conscious of our total dependence upon Him.
The greater our vision of who He is, the less thought we'll give to who we are.
