God smashes the pretensions of the arrogant;
He stands with those who have no standing. Proverbs 15: 25
I have sinned and I have no grounds to expect a blessing. I have no grounds to get help! What grounds do I have to expect grace??? Or what grounds do I have to expect forgiveness??? There is nothing as Rolain, that I can stand on, completely nothing…..!!!!!
I am guilty. I deserve to die, abandoned and disregarded. I deserve to be judged harshly. Is this not the case for all mankind???
But the word of God says, “He stands with those who have no standing.” When you have no grounds to stand before God, He stands with you! Such a powerful revelation. It’s all because of His grace, entirely dependant on His grace, there is not a single thing you can add! He stands on your behalf not because you got what it takes but because of His grace……..Selah! How I needed to hear that today!
He stands with me when He clearly knows I am faulty!! He knows I have nothing to show, no strength to boast about, no wisdom to brag about. He knows I have nothing and yet He stands with me.
He stands with you!
“Scrub away my guilt,
Soak away my sins in Your laundry.
I know how bad I’ve been;
my sins are staring me down.
You’re the One I’ve violated,
and You’ve seen it all, seen the full extent of my evil.
You have all the facts before You;
whatever You decide about me is fair.
Psalm 51: 2-6
Today, know that He stands with you and also know He is the only One who has seen the full extent of our evil and yet He extends grace to us……He doesn’t shrink back when He sees our sin. He stands by us never to forsake us. HE STANDS BY US…..
Thank You Lord! Such amazing grace……..
