Perhaps you’ve been thinking and saying, “Life is hard!”
Perhaps yesterday’s failure have left you dejected and discouraged.
Maybe a situation, relationship, conversation has given you a lens on yourself and sadly, you’ve realized that things aren’t what you thought.
The ‘right now’ situations of your life are exposing the neediness of your heart and, to bring you to the end of yourself.
Why does God do this? He does it because He knows that its only when you abandon your own wisdom, strength, and righteousness that you will begin to get excited about His grace.
God’s grace guarantees that you, in your struggle will never be alone.
Grace means that there’s strength available when you’re weak.
Grace gives you hope when there seems little to be found.
Grace enables you to get up and move forward when inside you want to quit or run away.
Grace reminds you again and again that you’re not alone.
“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.” (1 Cor 15:10)
In his grace God invades our situations, locations and relationships. He comes with power we don’t possess, wisdom unnatural to us, and love beyond anything we’ve ever known!
