He gives more grace

But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: ‘God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.'”—James 4:6

Annie Johnson Flint experienced many difficulties. Her mother died when Annie was just three. Her father suffered from an incurable disease. She spent years under the care of adopted parents, but both died when she was still young. Flint suffered from arthritis, which eventually made it difficult for her to walk.

Despite these challenges, Flint found joy in her relationship with Jesus. She committed her life to Him during a revival meeting when she was just eight. After that commitment, she never wavered in her faith, trusting Him through every circumstance.

She expressed her faith in many poems. One of her most beloved poems was “He Giveth More Grace.” Her words later became a powerful hymn. She wrote how she discovered that God gives more grace “as our burdens grow greater.” He sends “more strength as our labors increase.” As we go through difficulties, “He multiplies peace.”

In moments of weakness, we might feel reluctant to ask God for more or pray again. But Annie realized God has no limits. She learned, “His grace has no measure.” His power has no boundary. We can continue to turn to Him no matter what we received in the past.

Today, trust in God for everything you need. Don’t hesitate to call on Him. Remember that His supply is unlimited.

Reflection Question: What do you need God to provide right now?

PrayerFather, thank You that there is no limit to Your love. I trust in You and look to You for everything I need. In Jesus’ name, amen.
