KEY SCRIPTURE: James 4:6 KJV” But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.’
Grace is God’ s supernatural provision that works in the life of a believer, causing him or her to perform beyond his or her natural abilities. The Bible teaches us ways to have more of this grace. 2nd Peter 1:2 shows us that, as we increase in our knowledge of God, and our Lord Jesus grace and peace is multiplied to us. The Bible again shows us another way to receive more grace. James 4:6, says, “But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble”. More grace is given to the humble.
The Bible spoke against the proud man. He says God resists the proud man. There is no advantage in any form to be proud. Talking about, the humble, who is a humble man? Humility has nothing to do with temperamental traits. It is not about one being calm, cool, that makes him or her a humble person. Neither is an outspoken individual a proud man. Humility is purely dependent on one’s disposition towards God and His word. The meek and the humble are used interchangeably. Psalms 149:4 KJV For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
Give yourself to honoring God in all you do. Make sure you put the Lord first in every issue about your life. This is all that humility is about, your readiness to do what God says. When relating with people, humility becomes a product of love. There can’t be any true humility, shown to others where love does not reign. Love places great value on everyone and so is ready to give true service to that individual. You would speak to one another as very important people. 1Corinth 13:5 KJV(Love) Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Dear child of God receive more grace as you walk in true humility.
I am full of the Spirit. I manifest the nature of Jesus in demonstrating humility. I place God and His word above everyone or my own interests, in all I do. Through love I place great value on all persons, and this makes me treat all persons with great dignity and respect
Psalms 45:4 KJV ” And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.”
Zephaniah 2:3 KJV” Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.”
