James 4:6 – “But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. ” There’s no doubt that God is a lavish giver. He freely gives wisdom, grace and strength to those who call on Him. But it is only the humble heart that’s in a position to receive God’s grace. A proud person thinks he/she is good enough, smart enough, righteous enough to deserve God’s blessings. But then it wouldn’t be called grace, would it?
Grace is the free and unmerited favor of God on His children. If we’ve done something to merit it, it would be only a reward – not grace. While a reward may be limited, God’s grace is not. So, how do we remain humble and be willing recipients of God’s grace on a daily basis? • We confess our sins and receive God’s forgiveness (Psalm 32:5). • We learn to forgive others as God has forgiven us (Ephesians 4:32) • We trust in the Lord and don’t lean on our own understanding (Proverbs 3:5). • We do not despise the Lord’s correction (Hebrews 12:5). • We remember we can’t do anything without God (John 15:5). • We are consciously grateful for what God has given us (1 Thessalonians 5:18). • We remember the cross, always (2 Corinthians 5:21). When we remain humble and remember we are who we are because of Jesus, we position ourselves to receive more of God’s mercy, grace and favor. Remember who you are in Christ and you’ll be able to live an abundant life for God’s glory. https://scontent-amt2-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/cbf485abfc16589765d45828d1d4fbc4/5C0608CD/t51.2885-15/e35/39409909_1901322186835904_3090863250242273280_n.jpg2018-08-19

Is it time for a CHANGE? Are you fullfilled in your current job, relationship and overall wellbeing? Then ask yourself - Why am I still in this situation? Maybe your trying to change the situation and things seem futile. Then consider a change in your attitude to that particular situation while working on the change to the situation. What is God's purpose for your life? What is that nagging thing in the back of your mind that just will not go away. Is it your purpose? Is God sending you a message. devonfranklinseekgodseekgodfirstgodcenteredpurposedrivenpassiongamechangerchangegodismystrengthsundayjourneyeverydaypowerofgodhttps://scontent-amt2-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/9c03cdcd8558d87d939548abc72ef135/5C02E2CC/t51.2885-15/e35/38701708_146649742910272_4597522762782936897_n.jpg2018-08-19
