Thanking You for giving me more than I deserve. I’m humbly grateful Father. Amen.
Our human flaw of delusions of grandeur, can be tied back to the story of Adam and Eve, the desire to gain insight beyond our comprehension, and feel as though we could handle seeing and knowing all that He does. We forget that we are His image and likeness but we are not Him. He is our creator and we are His creations. He is our Master and we are His servants. He is our Father and we our His children.
When we forget our role, our place, our job, we mess things up. God’s grace is not given because we do remarkable things. We don’t earn His grace. It is unmerited. He does it because He loves us. But because we somehow think we earn it we think too highly of ourselves and forget that what was given can easily be taken.
We must be humble and grateful each day. We are no better or no worse than the next person. We have no power or right to judge others by God’s laws. Stay in your lane and let God handle His business.
