And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Jam 4:6-8a. There are times in our life when nothing goes right, everything we do is just not working. It’s at those times we need to dig deep and look inside. Are we being too proud to take advice from others? Are our motives right? The last thing we want to do is to be proud and be opposed by God. We need God with us. Sometimes our battles are with the unseen influences and as we humble ourselves before God He will draw near to us and shield us from our spiritual adversary that can wreak havoc in our lives. Praise God today that as we humble ourselves before Him and draw close to Him, He will strengthen us and clear a way forward for us at this time.
