But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble (James 4:6).
It is hard to resist temptation, endure hardship, and stay faithful through all the vicissitudes of life. It is also a constant battle to subdue our egos and not give in to pride.
Most of the people we meet make little or no effort toward such noble goals. They are pleased with themselves and believe whatever they choose to do is their right. But for the faithful Christian, God provides the favor, grace, and assistance needed to cope.
We are truly blessed!
