A Good Word for Today

Josh Daggett shared this with me this morning:

Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you,
1Peter 5:5-6 ESV

It is a frightening thing to consider that when I am proud God actively opposes me. But when I am humble (remembering my need for the gospel), instead of actively opposing me he is there to give grace on top of the grace he has already given, grace to desire and to carry out his will (Phil 2:13). Oh, how I need to receive grace from God’s hand today! Oh for humility!
