When Problems Come

When problems come, you have the opportunity to see God's grace at work in your life. If we never had any problems, we may be tempted to believe that we could live without God's grace.

What is God's grace? It simply means God's favor. It's unmerited favor. We don't deserve it. We could never earn it. God is gracious. He delights in giving His favor. God's grace gives you salvation in Christ. God's grace also gives you favor when your problems come. God says to you, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness" (2 Corinthians 12:9).

Grace will not cause all your problems to go away. It will give you God's favor and strength to get through them. As a believer, He will always give you strength sufficient for the problem. What's your problem? Remember, God's grace or favor is sufficient for every problem without exception.

Ask for God's grace when your problems come. He will give you strength through His grace. Your problems will give you the opportunity to experience His strength. He is not reluctant to give you grace. You may consider your problems unbearable. It certainly could be without God's grace. His grace brings mercy, new found strength, favor with God and man. Grace comes that "the power of Christ may rest upon you" (2 Corinthians 12:9).
