by Glen Elliott | Interrupting Grace series |
Life is hard, unfair and difficult. In those circumstances, it is hard to focus on anything but the bad situation. Grace is greater than any accident, sickness, setback or loss we might face. And, here’s the final key point we make about grace in this series: God’s grace works for our good in our difficulties. God doesn’t abandon us in our hardships; rather, because of grace…because he cares so much for us and wants the very best for us always, he works for good through our hardships. Our challenge is how we get grace and stay connected to grace when our circumstance is so powerfully difficult? The Bible urges us to do three things that help us get grace: We choose joy, we pray continually and we live in gratitude to keep grace from being interrupted by our situations.
