Equal Parts of Difficulty and Grace
“Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.” – Matthew 6:34
In the crucible of His wisdom and the ecology of His grace, God has ordered some trouble for you today. And every day of your life.
We’ve been blessed with difficulties. Yes, you read right—blessed! The worst thing that could happen to us would be not to have any difficulties. If that were the case, we’d never know our need of the Lord. So God in essence says, “I’m going to give you sufficient difficulty for the day.”
God gives you enough difficulty to draw you close to Him, but then God gives you enough grace to meet those difficulties every day.
Is there a difficult circumstance in your life? If so, thank God for sending it your way to make you more like Jesus. Now ask for His grace to be victorious through it!
