Praise the Lord Beautiful Ones
Today’s Word: Grace, grace, and more grace. How? By submitting yourselves to God!
James 4:7-8 says this, “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.”
This verse in the book of James gives us three steps for obtaining grace, grace and more grace.
- Submit yourself to God.
- Resist the devil in whatever form he appears.
- Come near to God.
Pretty easy, right? We didn’t think so, either. Beautiful Ones, grace is given to each believer to accomplish God’s will. It is an energizing strength that flows from the risen Christ, operates through the Holy Spirit, and dwells within in the believer. Who is the believer? You. Me. All of us who are marked, called, and chosen by Him –those who profess him as Savior.
We are believers who are given the grace of God. Why is that important? Because we know and understand that with this grace, comes the power to resist the devil, in whatever form he appears. With God’s grace, we can assume a posture of praise and prayer–thanking the Almighty God for his present help. With His grace, we stand firm giving no place to the adversary (Ephesians 4:27). We stand firm in faith. We stand.
By God’s grace, we stand! Let us thank Him for His gift of grace.
Blessings and love, from my heart to yours!
