Grow in Grace

"LORD, it is nothing with Thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O LORD our God; for we rest on Thee" (2 Chronicles 14:11).  "LORD, my heart is not haughty… neither do I exercise myself… in things too high for me" (Psalm 131:1).  "A wise son heareth his father's instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke" (Proverbs 13:1).  "There shall come in the last days scoffers… But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" (2 Peter 3:3,18). 

We grow in grace by knowing well
Our help is only in our Savior. 
We could not save ourselves from hell;
Our hope alone is in His favor. 

We grow in grace when we are humble
Before the Lord whom we obey,
Aware that we are prone to stumble
And, but for grace, we'd go astray. 

We grow in grace when we have heard
And have obeyed our Father's warning. 
In God alone we rest assured,
Though all around us, there is scorning. 

Lord, set our hearts on things above,
So we may thereby grow in grace
And in the knowledge of Your love
That deepens as we seek Your face.
