miracle of grace

A conversion from ignorance to faith, from sinfulness to holiness, from doubt to certainty, due not to natural causes at least principally, but to the operation of God's particular and unmerited assistance. It is improperly called a miracle; it is rather a remarkable change in a soul's career wrought by a peculiar and special intervention of God, quite distinct from His general providence and liberality.
