God’s Grace in Full Force

by Rick Warren

Now that the worst is over, we’re pleased we can report that we’ve come out of this with conscience and faith intact, and can face the world — and even more importantly, face you with our heads held high. But it wasn’t by any fancy footwork on our part. It was God who kept us focused on him, uncompromised.”  2 Corinthians 1:12 (MSG)

Regardless of your circumstances and how you feel, hang on to God’s unchanging character.

2 Corinthians 1:12 says, “Now that the worst is over, we’re pleased we can report that we’ve come out of this with conscience and faith intact, and can face the world — and even more importantly, face you with our heads held high. But it wasn’t by any fancy footwork on our part. It was God who kept us focused on him, uncompromised.”

Your circumstances cannot change the character of God. God’s grace is still in full force; he is still for you, even when you don’t feel it.

Remind yourself what you know to be eternally true about God: He is good, he loves you, he is with you, he knows what you’re going through, he cares, and he has a good plan for your life.

Raymond Edman, one of Billy Graham’s mentors, once said, “Never doubt in the dark what God told you in the light.”

So, what has God told you in the light that you now doubt in the dark? Why do you think you doubt God now? Remember, your circumstances cannot change the character of God.

Talk It Over

    I’ve learned God as a daddy so far, the more I read of how he protects me, the safety he bring and the way of removing my guilt.

    Daily thoughts devotionals have a been prophetical to my life so far. It sims like every update I get talks directly to the situation I’m facing.

    God is not a monster/master but a loving daddy. Through Christ I was adpted to be His son. The heir of God. I’m bless Pastor Warren.

    God has been soo Gooooood to me through the blood that was shed.

    In any circumstances, God doesn’t change. He is well aware of the difficulties you may face. Since He is God and your loving Father, hold your hand and walk through it with lesser difficulty, to make you seasoned to face the world boldly knowing that you are not alone anytime. He is there with you. Praise the Lord.

    Thank you. God bless you and keep you.
