He giveth more grace. James 4:6
It is impossible to be more welcome at the throne of grace than we are, or for God to be more willing to bestow. We are as welcome to the throne of grace, as angels are to the throne of glory. Our God has provided on purpose to give. He invites us to come that we may receive. He gives grace upon grace. He is never weary of bestowing, though we are of asking. We dishonour Him when we ask doubtfully, when we ask for small matters; He bids us ask in faith, nothing doubting; to open our mouths wide that He may fill them. Grace comprises all we need, to pardon our sins, sanctify our natures, conquer our foes, bear our trials, or perform our duties. If we have not, it is because we ask not, or because when we ask amiss, to consume it on our lusts. There is grace for us this morning; let us apply for it, expect to receive it, and determine to use it for God’s glory and the good of souls. He will give grace and glory, and no good things will He withhold from them that walk uprightly. They that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing. Ask, and YOU shall receive; seek, and YOU shall find. He giveth liberally, and upbraideth not.
Transporting truth-amazing word!
What! grace and glory from the Lord;
Oh, may I feel the promise true,
Fulfill’d in grace and glory too! –James Smith
