Power Grid, L goes up, why grid current goes up as well?

I am on a perpetual quest to understand reactive power.

one of the road blocks I encountered is this text:
" if inductive load in the grid increases, voltages across loads will drop. In order to maintain power delivered, grid current has to increase"

That statement is quite frustrating to understand. my understanding is that If voltage across a resistive load drops then less power is delivered to that resistive load, who and what mechanism is making sure constant power needs to be delivered to that resistive load?
