Grace is Bigger

Sometimes it seems like the sun won’t ever come out from behind the clouds.  It seems like the rain won’t stop, things won’t change, it won’t ever get better.  It can just seem like we stuck in a bad rut, and things just are as they are going to be.

Sometimes it seems like sufferings won’t end.  Like bad news won’t stop.  Like things just won’t get better.  Maybe you’ve been there.  Maybe you are there.  If you are, remember the truth of God, grace wins, and things will always get better.  Even the difficult times, they are not the end of the story, but really just the beginning.  Listen to what  we are told today in 2 Corinthians 1: 3-5:

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all consolation, 4who consoles us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to console those who are in any affliction with the consolation with which we ourselves are consoled by God. 5For just as the sufferings of Christ are abundant for us, so also our consolation is abundant through Christ

graceJust as the sufferings are abundant, so is our consolation.  God’s grace is bigger than our trials, our hurts, and our pain.  God’s grace is bigger than our worries.  God’s grace is bigger than the things that trouble us or worry us.  God’s grace is bigger.

We can forget that.  We can forget that God’s grace is truly bigger than anything that we face.  We can forget that Gods’ grace is able to overcome whatever is happening.  It is so tempting to think that our troubles are bigger than God’s grace.

That is not so. God’s grace is bigger than whatever we face.  Keep your eyes up.  Keep your eyes focused on grace.  Keep your eyes aware of God’s goodness.  Don’t every think that whatever you are going through is bigger than grace.  It is not.  Trust in grace in the middle of life, in the middle of the storm, in the middle of the pain.

If any problems in life, remember, God’s grace is bigger.  God wins, grace wins, life wins.  Never forget that.
