More Grace

“But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 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. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.” Notice the words “more grace.” When a Christian gets to the “more grace” stage through the Word of God, he is able to edify others, causing a dramatic change in their lives.

Submit to God first. Many people try to resist the devil before they submit to God. They are guaranteed to be knocked down many times. Rather, submit to God and then resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Rebound when you fail. “Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.” This is what James 4:8 is speaking of. Learn how to rebound instantly when you fail. Receive God’s power. In James 4:10 we read, “Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.”
